The two lovebirds hadn’t slept apart in 70 years, the family said. Once many years ago the two took an overnight ferry that had bunk-beds, and decided to both sleep on the bottom bunk instead of sleeping apart a single night. “She was staying strong for Dad and he was staying strong for her,” there son said. “That’s what kept them going.” He died from a broken heart.
