72 years

My friend Stephen posted this on twitter, and I couldn't help but share it.

This Iowa couple, married for 72 years, died within an hour of each other in the hospital holding hands. I'm not being girly. I think that's pretty inspiring to most people married or who want to marry some day.

"Someone in there said, 'Why, then, when we look at the monitor is his heart still beating?'" Sheets recalled. "The nurse said Dad was picking up Mom's heartbeat through Mom's hand."

Beautiful, don't you think? For the rest of the article from ABC, read here.
