My father-in-law took care of my mother-in-law who was in worse condition, for almost twenty years. She died in 2009, and he died nine days later, of a broken heart.
I have a similar story. My grandmother passed away from battling with dementia for a few years and my grandpa passed a year later. They grew up together. Such a beautiful and sad story.
This reminds me of a couple I always see at the nursing home I visit in Round Rock, the husband always comes every Sunday to visit his wife and brings some kind of treat with him. She is always beaming when I see them together sitting in the front lobby holding hands.
