This story could have come straight from the movie, The Notebook and is enough to bring a tear (or 10) to your eyes!
Texas couple Georege and Ora Lee Rodriguez, who were both 78-years old, died this week just hours apart.
The pair met at a butcher shop almost 60 years ago just before George left San Antonio to join the Marines. Once he’d finished his service, he and Ora got Married and had three gorgeous daughters.
Just after their 58th Wedding anniversary earlier this year, they both fell ill. George had a stroke and they both suffered from dementia.
They both passed away peacefully in their sleep in their hospital beds, which were right beside one another – and they were holding hands at the time.
Their daughter, Corina Martinez told KABB ‘I just can’t believe something like this would ever happen. You hear this on the movies, like The Notebook.’
Not only did the pair die together, but they passed away surrounded by love, with their daughters, grandchildren and great-grandchildren by their side.
