This is one of the most classical stories of love and togetherness that has stood the test of time, as, according reports, Alexander Toczko, 95, and his wife, and Jeanette, 96, who have been married for 75 years finally died in each other's arms a few hours apart.


The couple who got married in 1940 and have eight children and several grand children, were so fond of each other that they reportedly told their family they would not be able to live without one another and it would be better if they 'went home' together.


And they got their wishes when Jeanette gave up the ghost after  protracted illness, with Alexander following her about two hours later, wrapped in her arms.


This may be a heart touching story, but isn't this one of the warmest things that could happen between a couple?
