Couple married for 62 years die 4 hours apart holding hands
Californian couple, Don and Maxine Simpson died four hours apart on adjoining beds, holding hands.
According to their grand daughter Melissa Sloan, Maxine died first and when her body was removed from the room, her husband followed.
"All Don wanted was to be with his beautiful wife. He adored my grandmother, loved her to the end of the earth," she told KERO-TV.
He was 90 and she was 87, and they met at a bowling alley in Bakersfield in 1952, and got married in the same year.
They are survived by one son and five grandchildren.
