Couple Dies Holding Hands and Just Hours Apart
Sun 01-03-2015

After 67 years of marriage, Floyd and Violet Hartwig died on February 11 just five hours apart at their home in Easton, California.

With their beds pushed together, the couple held hands up until Floyd's last breath, The Fresno Bee reports. Violet died five hours later.

"We felt blessed because we knew that's what they wanted," their daughter Donna Scharton said.

Scharton gets teary-eyed reminiscing about the lifelong love her parents shared up until the very end.

"When we went to the funeral home and saw the two caskets, it was meant to be," she said. "And that's the only way it could end."
