After 77 Years Of Marriage, Loving Couple Embrace As They Enter Heaven Together
When you get married, one of the vows that everyone usually includes in the ceremony is “Til death do us part.” Unfortunately, in this day and age of impulsive decision-making and quick divorces, it doesn’t always play out like that.
One elderly couple, however, took those words quite literally. Their granddaughter shared a photo of them on Reddit, showing the 100-year-old man holding hands with his 96-year-old bride as they both slowly wait for death after 77 beautiful years together.
The heartbreakingly beautiful picture quickly went viral, with millions of users sharing it all over social media. The granddaughter, a Reddit user named RealLiveGirl, posted the following caption to the image: “My Grandma, 96, with my Grandpa, 100, hours before her death this weekend. 77 years of marriage.”
After the photo went viral, she added a little more information, saying, “I know they are my grandparents. But this picture is seriously the saddest and cutest thing I’ve ever seen.” Thousands of people agreed with her, with many well-wishers offering their condolences.
“Sorry for your loss,” wrote Redditor CramPacked. “But what a ‘great’ way to go. Holding hands with your spouse, in a warm bed, presumably with loved ones around. Sympathy to your Grandfather who lost his lifelong wife. God bless all around.”
Many users also shared their own personal stories of loss and love. Shockingly, there were also some hate-filled comments received, but most of them were positive and sympathetic. Most people agreed that as sad as it was, there was something undeniably beautiful about a love so enduring. We should all be so fortunate, and I can definitely say that if I had to choose my death, this would be it. Now please excuse me while I go tell my wife how much I love her through all these blubbering tears.
When I Am Old
When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat that doesn’t go, and doesn’t suit me,
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
And satin sandals, and say we’ve no money for butter.
I shall sit down on the pavement when I am tired,
And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells,
And run my stick along the public railings,
And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
And pick the flowers in other people’s gardens,
And learn to spit.
You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat,
And eat three pounds of sausages at a go,
Or only bread and pickle for a week,
And hoard pens and pencils and beer mats and things in boxes.
But now we must have clothes that keep us dry,
And pay our rent and not swear in the street,
And set a good example for the children.
We will have friends to dinner and read the papers.
But maybe I ought to practise a little now?
So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised,
When suddenly I am old and start to wear purple!
