A couple who was known for holding hands at every single breakfast for 70 years got married on February 20th, 1944. The husband, Kenneth was only 21 years and had been previously dating his wife Helen for 3 years before getting eloped.
About two years ago, Kenneth had to get his leg amputated due to circulation problems. Thats when Helen became his primary caretaker.
Helen continued taking care of him up until she passed away from old age.
Unable to live without his wife, Kenneth passed away within 15 hours of Helen dying.
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.
