Some of you may know I was away last weekend for a funeral--two deaths in the family within a matter of hours. But I was not especially saddened.

The local news there covered the lives of Aunt Ruby and Uncle John, and it was pretty sweet: http://www.wthr.com/story/27849048/tonight-at-530-an-indiana-love-story It runs about three and a half minutes.

I guess four hours apart was their max, after 76 years together.

Maryn, with many fond memories of them

Well, gosh, Maryn, it's funny that I noticed a headline about this couple, a few days ago, and had no idea this was the funeral you were attending.

Sweet story, and your Uncle John's eyes in the photos are really amazing.

Thanks for telling this.

I did a funeral years ago during my escort gig where he died the day of her funeral. I think that couple had been married 40 or 50 years.

Sorry for your loss, but glad you're comforted by that story.

Sat Nam! (literally "Truth Name"--a Sikh greeting)

Yes, some deaths like that are endearing.
