True Love Story

angelYou have probably never heard of Harold and Ruth but thanks to Bill I am going to share their story. Harold and Ruth were married for 65 years, they met as children and then became pen pals (when Harold went off to war) before finally tying the knot. They had six children and lived a life devoted to one another. In their twilight years they shared a room at the Dayton nursing home. Harold’s health recently began declining rapidly but he held on, knowing that his wife Ruth needed him. A few days before their 66th wedding anniversary Harold passed away, followed a few hours later by his wife. The family held a joint funeral for the pair with the grandaughters carrying Ruth’s casket and the grandsons carrying Harold’s. One of the daughters remarked  “They were so committed and loyal and dedicated, they weren’t going to go anywhere without the other one.”
