Henry and Jeanette De Lange were married 63 years. The way they lived and died is a testament to their love and their Christian faith.
The South Dakota husband and wife died 20 minutes apart. Both were ill and in a nursing home, but nobody predicted this outcome. Apparently, they couldn’t stand being apart. While losing both parents at the same time is heartbreaking, it is very comforting to their 5 children to know they went together.
As you can see in the video below, their son Lee describes telling his father that their mom has passed and that he can go be with her if he wants. And within minutes he was gone. Their children believe the manner in which they died highlights their Christian faith and their Christian marriage.
That is so beautiful. They just couldn’t stand to be apart. They obviously loved each other very much. Sometimes how you die says a lot about how you lived.
Please share this if you believe in true love!
