Richard and Nancy Trimmer, who were married 61 years—and died on Sunday, within 12 hours of each other. The Evening Sun reports that the Pennsylvania couple learned that 81-year-old Richard had lung cancer in November; he was given six months. After a fall, he was taken to York Hospital, and his wife didn't react well.
"She didn't want to be in the house without him," explains the couple's daughter-in-law. "It was all just getting too hard, so God took care of it."
Nancy was soon hospitalized in a separate location for lingering issues from a 10-year-old heart surgery. At 12:25am Sunday, she died.
When the family arrived at Richard's bedside to break the bad news, they discovered him in far worse condition than usual—and the clock in his room stuck at 12:25. His family stayed with him as he repeatedly said, "Pull me up." And then, "Hold me tighter now." And then he was gone.

With a name like "shadowangel" and you cannot see the beauty in this. the beauty lies not in death, but in two kindred spirits leaving the world together. A symbiotic relationship. the one cannot live without the other. it is the love that spares the one from the torment of losing the other and vice versa.
What is 'beautiful' about the news that 2 people died?
This happened to my grandparents. My grandfather had died in the hospital due to complications from lung cancer. My grandmother, who was in perfect health, was found a few days later dead in her bed. She must have died in her sleep. But they found her with a big smile on her face.
