Very sweet story from New Zealand:

An elderly Levin couple together for more than 60 years died within hours of each other in circumstances that Shakespeare could not have written better, their daughter says.

With only hours to live, Marion Bray-Gunn, 84, was being taken from Palmerston North hospital on Tuesday so she could die beside husband Sydney, who was also fading at Horowhenua Hospital.

But the World War II veteran, 86, died from natural causes an hour before she arrived.

Mrs Bray-Gunn died next to her husband five hours later, surrounded by family.

Daughter Marlene Dunsmore, 62, said the circumstances were “just wonderful for us as a family, absolutely surreal”.

Full story here.
