Когато се прибрах вкъщи онази нощ, докато жена ми сервираше вечерята, аз хванах ръката ѝ и казах, че има нещо, което трябва да ѝ кажа. Тя седна и се нахрани тихо. Отново забелязах болката в очите ѝ. Изведнъж аз не знаех как да отворя устата си. Но аз трябваше да ѝ кажа какво си мислех....
Know what forever feels like.

A devoted Iowa couple married for 72 years died holding hands in the hospital last week, exactly one hour apart. The passing reflected the nature of their marriage, where, "As a rule, everything was done together," said the couple's daughter Donna Sheets, 71. Gordon Yeager, 94, and his wife Norma, 90, left their small town of State Center, Iowa, on Wednesday to go into town, but never made it. A car accident sent the couple to the emergency room and intensive care unit with broken bones and other injuries. But, even in the hospital, their concerns were each other. "She was saying her chest hurt and what's wrong with Dad? Even laying there like that, she was worried about Dad," said the couple's son, Dennis Yeager, 52. "And his back was hurting and he was asking about Mom." When it became clear that their conditions were not improving, the couple was moved into a room together in beds side-by-side where they could hold hands. "They joined hands; his right hand, her left hand," Sheets said. Gordon Yeager died at 3:38 p.m. He was no longer breathing, but the family was surprised by what his monitor showed. "Someone in there said, 'Why, then, when we look at the monitor is the heart still beating?'" Sheets recalled. "The nurse said Dad was picking up Mom's heartbeat through Mom's hand." "And we thought, 'Oh my gosh, Mom's heart is beating through him,'" Dennis Yeager said. Norma Yeager died exactly an hour later. "Dad used to say that a woman is always worth waiting for," Dennis Yeager said. "Dad waited an hour for her and held the door for her." The inseparable couple was engaged and married within 12 hours in 1939 on the day Norma Yeager graduated from high school. "She graduated from high school on May 26, 1939, at about 10 a.m., and at about 10 p.m. that night she was married to my dad at his sister's house," Sheets said. The vibrant duo had a "very, very full life." They worked as a team. They traveled together, they were in a bridge club together and they worked in a Chevrolet dealership, creamery and other businesses together. "They always did everything together," Sheets said. "They weren't apart. They just weren't." Dennis Yeager described his father as an "outgoing" and "hyper" man who was still working on the roof of his house and sitting cross-legged with no problem at age 90. "The party didn't start until he showed up," he said. "He was the outgoing one and she supported him by being the giver. She supported Dad in everything. And he would've been lost without her." Dennis Yeager said it is strange today to go into his parents' home and see the "two chairs side-by-side that they sat in all the time," empty. He said it was in those chairs that his parents cheered on the Arizona sports teams they loved and rarely missed an episode of "Wheel of Fortune" and "The Price Is Right." According to their obituary, besides their children, the Yeagers are survived by her sister, Virginia Kell, and his brother, Roger Yeager, as well as 14 grandchildren, 29 great-grandchildren and one great-great grandchild. Their grandson Randy Yeager said he has been inspired in his own 13-year marriage by his grandparents' loving and lasting marriage. "Grandpa and I were talking this summer about all of the people getting divorced for this reason or that and he mentioned that nobody stays together anymore," Randy Yeager wrote to ABCNews.com in an email. "I told [him] that my wife Mara and I would never be getting a divorce and he said, 'That's because you're old school, like me!' "That was one of the greatest compliments I could have ever received and one I will strive to live up to for the rest of my life," Randy Yeager said. The couple were put in a casket together holding hands for their funeral this week, but are being cremated and will have their ashes mixed before burial. "All their life has been together," Sheets said. "So, when it came to the funeral home, the family asked, 'Can we have them put in the casket together holding hands?' Because that's the way their life was."

Did you know, A human body can bear only up to 45 del (unit) of pain. But at the time of giving birth, a woman feels up to 57 del (unit) of pain. This is similar to 20 bones getting fractured at a time. Love our mother, the most beautiful person on this earth, our best critic, yet our strongest supporter. WOW.
Giving birth is the most amazing pain ever! and being a mother is the most amazing blessing ever!!
Next time a guy compares getting kicked in the berries to giving birth I will tell him this.. haha love you mom!
I remember what you were, Mom.

I like this, but I disagree on the pain part, the pain never stops.. life changes, though 4.5 years later my heart still hurts & I think about him everyday. I treasure the precious memories I hold close to my heart and with my family, friends, & the special man in my life today, I appreciate every moment I have with them knowing that time with our loved ones is truley a gift from God. -Sheryl Renee
This is very thoughtful! have spent the past few months rebuilding my life. I have finally become the person i have always hoped to be... the only piece missing is her. I have met many new people and have many close friends but no one can ever fill her shoes. She will always be my best friend <3 imu
To lose someone you love is to alter your life forever... The pain stops, there are new people, but the gap never closes..... This hold in your heart is the shape of the one you lost - no one else can fit it. Jeanette Winterson So very well said - I will always love you, no matter what.
I loved them as hard as I could, and I got the same in return. Cherish your parents.

If you still have your parents then you are most fortunate. My Dad made adirondack chairs like these and most unfortunate mine fell into destruction by someone I never would have thought..
Just lost my Dad and I know the truth in this quote!
This is so true. I haven't had the best of relationship with my parents. This past weekend me and my family almost lost my dad to suicide. The last time I spoke with him was around Easter time. I'm am thankful to still have my dad with us. I couldn't imagine my life without him.
According to republicans it's the elderly and the poor that are destroying America. I suggest that maybe it's mega-rich corporations that have bought the heart and soul of the Republican Party. The plan, to be released Tuesday, calls for a controversial overhaul of Medicare, the health care program for seniors, and imposes deep cuts in Medicaid, which provides health benefits to low-income Americans, according to House Republican sources with knowledge of the proposal.
