Couple together for nearly 65 years die on the same day

ARNOLD, Mo. (AP)-A couple who had been together for nearly 65 years have died on the same day at a St. Louis-area nursing home.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Jack and Harriet Morrison's beds were placed next to each other, allowing them to hold hands.

Eighty-six-year-old Jack died first on Jan. 11. Eighty-three-year-old Harriet died later that day.

The couple went on their first date on Halloween of 1955. They married about six months later.

The couple's niece Sue Wagener called it a love story for the books.

Together, the couple ran and grew V-K Bus Lines while raising Wagener and their two sons.
