A heart-trending photo posted by a grieving granddaughter to Reddit has shown this vow come true for one couple after 77 years. User RealLiveGirl, from California, shared an image of her grandparents to the social network with the caption:
“My Grandma, 96, with my Grandpa, 100, hours before her death this weekend. 77 years of marriage.”
She later added: “I know they are my grandparents. But this picture is seriously the saddest and cutest thing I’ve ever seen.”
Other users agreed, with CramPacked commenting: “Sorry for your loss. But what a ‘great’ way to go. Holding hands with your spouse, in a warm bed, presumably with loved ones around.
“Sympathy to your Grandfather who lost his lifelong wife. God bless all around.”
