An Iowa couple who was married for 72 years died one hour apart last week in the hospital as they held hands.

Family said the story of Gordon, 94, and Norma Yeager, 90, is a real-life love story.

On the day she graduated from high school, Norma Stock said yes to Gordon Yeager's marriage proposal. The couple got married on May 26, 1939 in State Center.

"They're very old-fashioned. They believed in marriage til death do you part," said son Dennis Yeager.

Does the Pit believe in true love?

In first with the d'awww vote.

So one of them was lying next to a dead body for over an hour?

Holding hands with a dead body that may or may not be laying in a pile of feces and urine? No thanks.

They had a car crash (**** knows why they were allowed to drive at 90/94) and were both unconscious/unresponsive for quite a while before either of them died.

It does seem a bit odd that the hospital people just left the first cadaver lying there though

Rest In Peace to the both of them.
