Don and Maxine Simpson were married for over six decades and did everything together, their family said.
A couple of weeks ago, Don fell and broke his hip. He was taken to hospital but his health began deteriorating quickly. Around the same time, the cancer Maxine had been battling also began to progress.
She said she heard her grandmother take her last breath. After she took Maxine’s body out of the room she returned to find Don had stopped breathing as well.
"He left with her, and they passed four hours apart from each other," Sloan added. "They left this world together. It's just amazing. It really is amazing. It's a true love story."
