California Couple Married For 62 Years Passes Away 4 Hours Apart Making Sure You Don't Ever Think The Notebook Isn't Real!
This is basically a real-life version of the The Notebook and NO THOSE AREN'T TEARS STREAMING DOWN OUR FACE.
A couple that was married for 62 years passed away within four hours of one another.
Don and Maxine Simpson from Bakersfield, California, were both suffering from various maladies - with Don having broken his hip and Maxine having a severe form of cancer - so their health both declined around the same time.
The couple spent their final hours together and, wait for it, were HOLDING HANDS the whole time. (Cue all the tears in the world)
Their grandaughter, Melissa Sloan, explained what happened to the couple at the end.
