I'm not one to get all gushy over romantic stories but this story got me. It's so sweet and sad.

I'm not a particularly sappy reader, but this was a local story that I couldn't get through without honest to goodness tears.

Yes that is shedding some tears and legacy they have left. My parents are married 48 years and they stuck together even tho a few times was rough.

Sorry to rain on your parade, but the story left out that they were the cause of the accident and they injured another couple who ended up in the hospital. The female has a broken neck.<br><br><a href="http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/44960859/ns/today-today_news/t/couple-married-years-dies-holding-hands/#.TqDos3Jjavm" target="_blank">http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/449608.../#.TqDos3Jjavm</a></div>

I think the first article was definitely written by a romantic.... the second article makes them look like vicious killers. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

Yeah, I doubt the driver pulled out in front of the car on purpose. Sad story, all around.

Car accidents happen and it's usually someones fault. Doesn't make their story any less romantic though, they were still married 72 years and died an hour apart holding hands. Shouldn't have been driving, probably because of complications due to advanced age.
