Love: Married For 71 Years, Couple Dies Within 4 Minutes Of Each Other

From the LeicesterMercury: A couple who enjoyed 71 happy years of marriage died within four minutes of each other..
Wilf Russell was 93 when he took his final breath at Magna Care Home in Wigston at 6.50am on Wednesday.
Four minutes later, three miles away at Leicester Royal Infirmary, his 91-year-old wife Vera, was pronounced dead.on Wednesday. 
Their granddaughter Stephanie Welch said: "My grandad was diagnosed with dementia a year ago and he had to go into the care home a couple of months back.
"My nan went to see him recently and he didn't recognise her at all - her health started deteriorating from that day.
"I went to visit her at Leicester Royal Infirmary on Sunday and she opened her eyes and asked me where Wilf was.
"The last thing she said to me was, 'We're a right pair, aren't we?'
"He died at 6.50am and she died at 6.54am without being told about Wilf.
"I think she was waiting for him to go. She was broken-hearted."
There really not too say about this but sure helps prove there is an afterlife.
