A couple who had been together for nearly 65 years have died on the same day at a St. Louis-area nursing home.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Jack and Harriet Morrison’s beds were placed next to each other, allowing them to hold hands.
Eighty-six-year-old Jack died first on Jan. 11.
Eighty-three-year-old Harriet died later that day.
The couple went on their first date on Halloween of 1955. They married about six months later.
The couple’s niece Sue Wagener called it a love story for the books.
Together, the couple ran and grew V-K Bus Lines while raising Wagener and their two sons.
