Georgia couple married 71 years die 12 hours apart

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- A Georgia couple spent 71 years happily married. At the end of their earthly love story, the love birds entered heaven just hours apart.

According to WRDW, Frances and Herbert DeLaigle met in Waynesboro, Georgia, when they were 16 and 22 years old.

"Frances worked at a little cafe we had in Waynesboro named White Way Cafe," Herbert said in a 2018 interview. "I kept seeing her going in and out, in and out, and I had my eyes set on her. And then I finally got up the nerve to ask her if she would go out with me sometime."

The pair went to the movies for their first date; a year later Herbert asked Frances to marry him.

However, their vows almost didn't happen.

"He was always late," Frances said.

That propensity for being late resulted in Herbert being an hour later to the church on their wedding day. Herbert was so late, the preacher had decided not to perform the ceremony.

It took some convincing, but the preacher eventually agreed to rush through the service and wed the DeLaigles.

From there, the couple traveled extensively. Herbert was in the Army for 20 years, which took him and his wife to Germany and many U.S. states.

Agree 100%

I have no doubt the `pain` caused by the passing of their loved one would be major in its cause.
As sad as it is to lose the other their suffering was quick.
.... And thats coming from an old Cynic
