Are the tissues ready??!
Good, because we have an authentic love story that makes The Notebook seem like a cheap rip off.
Michael and Olympia DeNittis experienced a fairytale-like romance!
The couple first met when they were just kiddies growing up down the street from one another in Port Reading, New Jersey before enjoying 67 blissful married years together.
The sweethearts were completely inseparable throughout their lives — evidently even in death after passing away just hours apart last week.
Wifey Olympia passed away at 95 from pneumonia on February 2nd at a hospital in Edison, New Jersey.
While their children and granddaughter were present, they chose not to tell her hubby the bad news as he continued to endure a years-long battle with colon cancer.
The surviving kin were afraid Michael would stop the fight for his life even though they believed Olympia died of a broken heart at the thought of his impending death.
Are you tearing up yet??! Just wait.
