Till death do us part! Couple die within hours after staying apart for a night

 

 

This is True love!
A couple who held hands at breakfast every morning even after 70 years of
marriage have died 15 hours apart.

Helen Felumlee, of Nashport, Ohio, died at 92 on April 12. Her husband,
91-year-old Kenneth Felumlee, died the next morning.

The couple’s eight children say the two had been inseparable since meeting
as teenagers, once sharing the bottom of a bunk bed on a ferry rather than
sleeping one night apart, the Zanesville Times Recorder reported.

They remained deeply in love until the very end, even eating breakfast
together while holding hands, said their daughter, Linda Cody.

“We knew when one went, the other was going to go,” she said.

According to Cody, about 12 hours after Helen died, Kenneth looked at his
children and said, “Mom’s dead.” He quickly began to fade and was surrounded by
24 of his closest family members and friends when he died the next morning.

“He was ready,” Cody said. “He just didn’t want to leave her here by
herself.”

Son Dick Felumlee said his parents died of old age, surrounded by family.

“At Dad’s bed we were singing his favourite hymns, reading scriptures and
praying with him,” he told The Associated Press in an email. “It was a going
away party, and we know he loved it.”

The pair had known each other for several years when they eloped in Newport,
Kentucky, across the Ohio River from Cincinnati, on Feb. 20, 1944. At two days
shy of his 21st birthday, Kenneth — who went by Kenny — was too young to marry
in Ohio.

“He couldn’t wait,” son Jim Felumlee said.

 
 

Kenneth worked as a railroad car inspector and mechanic before becoming a
mail carrier for the Nashport Post Office. He was active in his
Nashport-Irville United Methodist Church as a Sunday school teacher.

Helen stayed at home, not only cooking and cleaning for her own family but
also for other families in need in the area. She taught Sunday school, too, but
was known more for her greeting card ministry, sending cards for birthdays,
sympathy and the holidays to everyone in her community, each with a personal
note inside.

When Kenneth retired in 1983 and the children began to leave the house, the
Felumlees began to explore their love of travel, visiting almost all 50 states
by bus.

“He didn’t want to fly anywhere because you couldn’t see anything as you
were going,” Jim Felumlee said.

Although both experienced declining health in recent years, Cody said, each
tried to stay strong for the other.

“That’s what kept them going,” she said.

What a beautiful thing to
give God thanks and to announce His love.  I saw Your work, O Lord. You

In
February this year, as the borehole drillers were doing their work in our
compound, the enemy struck! Everyone was together watching the pumping of the water and rejoicing that we now have a bore-hole after years of going to fetch water, lol.

The generator  used in pumping the water was at the back of the house and the wires were connected to the pumping machine in the front of the house.

My grand daughter, a 4year
old, was all by herself...
