An incredible photo has surfaced on internet which shows an elderly couple who were married for 75 years fulfilling their final wishes to die together.

A couple from San Diego California- Jeanette Toczko, 96, and her 95-year-old husband, Alexander Toczko, died just hours apart as they held hands in bed.


The pair spent their lives in love since childhood when they were only eight years old.

But several weeks ago, Mr Toczko suffered a broken hip in a fall and was left bed-bound. A local hospice delivered a special bed to his home, which staff pushed up next to his beloved wife’s bed.

As Mr Toczko’s condition quickly declined, Mrs Toczko’s own health took a turn for the worse. The couple had always said they wished to die ‘in their own bed, holding hands, in each other’s arms’. and so they did as they wished.
