For six decades, Floreen and Ed Hale have been inseparable, and even death could not keep them apart.

On February 7, Mrs Hale, 82, passed away in a Batavia, New York, hospital, with her gravely ill husband lying next to her and holding her hand until the very end.

Just 36 hours later, Ed Hale died at age 83.

My old lady died and my old man cried like some long lost child. Six months later it was his turn and no one bother to cry much for him. They make a mockery of themselves when they were alive and drove everyone away. This couple is so different.
