NASHVILLE - An American couple who had been married for almost 64 years, his last moments in the hospital hand had spent. They died just hours apart.
Just days before the 83-year-old Dolores Winstead was still at the hospital bed of her husband Trent (88). He was included because his kidneys were not working properly. His condition deteriorated rapidly and his heart began to fail.
However, when Dolores was ill. She complained of headaches and vomiting as she stood at the bedside of her husband. They appeared to have had a stroke.
The woman was hospitalized and soon became apparent that she did not live long. The hospital staff put the beds of the two lovers together, so they could spend their last moments together.
Dolores died in her sleep while she was held firmly by her husband by the hand. Daughter Sheryl shared a photo of the particular moment on Facebook. The son of Trent told his father that his lover was gone, when he told him to arrange a pink coffin and a pink dress for the funeral. The woman wanted to.
Just a few hours later died Trent. 'He could not remember that she was no longer there,' Sheryl said to the Washington Post. 'I did not think at that moment, but he is literally deceased from a broken heart. I never thought that I would leave the hospital without parents. '\n \n \n advertisement
