They’ve been married for 71 years and although they were three miles apart from each other at the moment, this husband and wife from the UK died within four minutes of each other.
It’s definitely a tragic love story that sounds like a plot for a romantic movie or a novel – except this one happened in real life.
Wilf Russell, 93, and Vera Russell, 91, died just 4 minutes apart of each other.
According to reports, 93-year-old Wilf Russell passed away at 6:50 PM in a Leicestershire care home. Four minutes after that, 91-year-old Vera Russell also died while she was at the Leicester Royal Infirmary, a hospital about three miles away.
Stephanie Welch, their granddaughter, was later interviewed by the Leicester Mercury.
“I think she was waiting for him to go. She was broken-hearted.”
“We’re a right pair, aren’t we?” Vera told Stephanie, her granddaughter.
As Stephanie shared:
“My grandad was diagnosed with dementia a year ago and he had to go into the care home a couple of months back. My nan went to see him recently and he didn’t recognize her at all – her health started deteriorating from that day.
“I went to visit her at Leicester Royal Infirmary on Sunday and she opened her eyes and asked me where Wilf was. The last thing she said to me was: ‘We’re a right pair, aren’t we?’”
When Wilf died, Vera soon followed without even hearing about what happened to her husband.
Apparently, Wilf and Vera first met when they were 18 and 16. They got engaged before Wilf was assigned to Italy and North America during World War II.
In their old age, the deceased couple left 2 sons, 5 grandchildren,7 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great-grandchildren.
This tale of true love is definitely tragic and heartwarming at the same time. Besides, staying married for 71 years is a rare achievement these days.

The young man posted his story on the Chinese language online "confessions forum" Dcard along with a reference photo of his gift to his grandmother. Below is a translation of what he wrote:
I noticed that my grandmother has been using the same bag for the longest time. The bag, which is made of Hakka cloth, is already kind of worn out. In fact, it was already tattered in some spots.
Nerdy Uber Driver Shocks Passengers With His Insane Rapping Skills
The guys in the back had me rolling.
Not all cab or Uber passengers like to interact with the driver. There are passengers who just like to ride in peace and get to their destination as quick as possible. But not all drivers get the hint; some would initiate conversation and the passenger will make an effort to tolerate the banter.
These two men who got into an Uber in Las Vegas never thought interacting with the driver would be so much fun. They got into the car and saw a nerdy-looking driver greeting them.
Once settled, the driver asked them if they don't mind listening to music.
