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.
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.
