True love story: Couple spends final moments holding hands; dies hours apart

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — A couple married for 62 years died the same way they lived: together.

According to KERO, Don and Maxine Simpson met in a bowling alley and got married a few years later.

They traveled all over the world and adopted two sons.

About two weeks ago, Don fell at home and broke his hip so he was taken to the hospital. Maxine was also battling cancer and had been for years. Her cancer progressed.

Their family them to the same bedroom with their beds side-by-side.

“I told my sister on the phone, we got one shot to get them together,” Sloan said. “Gram woke up and saw him, and held hands and they knew that they were next to each other,” said Sloan.

Their granddaughter, Melissa Sloan, heard Maxine’s last breaths. Four hours later, just after Maxine’s body was taken out of the room, Melissa checked on her grandfather. He was gone, too.

        Katherine timmy is a meathead that was left on the church step because when he was born his mom look at him and knew he was a lost cost. She knew he would be someone that nobody would love. That why he never have anything good to say.

        Athynz timmy is here looking for attention because his mother left him on a church step because he was born dumb. The church didn’t want him so they left him in a pasture.

    They were unhappy because she “cut him off” years ago and then threatened to destroy him in divorce court if he complained too much.

      Timmy I am going to see if there is a way to get you off these comments blogs. You are a stupid ###. That probably what happen with your mom & dad. There was no love in your home and that is the reason why you are a loser.

        You are such a jealous bitter little man Timmay. What’s the matter boy, can’t admit that you screwed the pooch when it came to your marriage and women in general? I find it highly amusing you keep thinking I’m a woman… I’m just a man who finds your attitude towards women to be disgusting. I really pity you and I hope you enjoyed the last bit of coitus you had – it’s not likely you’ll have it again unless you pay a professional.
