I believe it's both a beautiful, and tragic story.
It's beautiful to see that 2 people can put trivial issues aside and live a life together for so long, with the bigger picture always over ruling the
day to day squabbles and pettiness.
But it's also tragic that 2 people become so reliant on each other that one cannot go on without the other. I have heard so many of these stories now
of life long couples dying a short time apart, where it seems that one may of died from natural causes, yet the other died from what appears as dying
from a broken heart, or losing all will to go on living. I know these aren't medical definitions, but the medical world isn't gospel either. And
there are many things that occur that even science, religion or medicine still cannot explain.
It could also be a case of a couple who both believe in the next or after life, and are simply speeding up the process of meeting again because they
can't stand being apart ?
Losing all will to live would be a way of possibly speeding up that process ?
If they are now both dead an buried, then that's all there is to it. If they went to another or next life, then I hope they are together and enjoying
the next journey.
But on a light-hearted finish, the 70 years of marriage does go a long way to proving the saying correct of "you get less for murder" !
