I came across this story while surfing the net the other day. “Long-Married Couple, Melvin and Doris Cornelson, Died Within Hours of Each Other”
They enjoyed 62 loving years of marriage.
Last week, Kansas couple Melvin and Doris Cornelson died within hours of each other, reports local news station KWCH. Melvin, 85, suffering from cancer, died with his wife by his side.
Hours later, Doris, 80, lay down for a nap and never woke up.
“They never dated anyone else,” the couple’s daughter, Candi Sawatzky, told KWCH. “They’re happy. I know they are.”
I’ve read about stories such as this one before, and each time I’m amazed at news station KWCH.
How a heart knows that it simply cannot go on without the love of another is testament that once you find a love so unconditional and pure you never want to live without it.
I’m sure there are naysayers out there who will protest how they died within hours of each other as nothing more than coincidental, and I suppose that’s possible. But then I’d suspect those naysayers have no idea what it means to love someone that much.
