George and Esther Szekeres' life together began more than 70 years ago after a chance meeting at university.
And it ended together when they passed away peacefully on Sunday within half an hour of each other at a nursing home.

"Dad passed away at 6.15am and Mum died at 6.45am."

Australian College of Applied Psychology chairwoman Dhurva Davis said not all deaths are caused by illness, and some part of Mrs Szekeres' mind decided she could not live without her husband.

"Love and close companionship over the years have a big impact on people's mind, body and emotional connections," Ms Davis said.

"Medical science has a long way to go to understand the mind-body connection.


I personally do believe that this example of mind-body connection takes place. I remember reading an article way back in 2000, about an elderly couple who were married for about 75 years, were in the same nursing home (not the one in the article above), who passed away within 90 minutes of each other. But, in this case they were not in the same room and they were not told of their husband's or wife's condition. Makes you think, eh.


P.S: Sorry if this is in the wrong forum.
