Floyd Nordhagen, 92, and Margaret Nordhagen, 88, ended life the way they spent it: side by side and hand in hand, after a car crash killed Floyd and seriously injured Margaret (she died later). When Washington State Patrol troopers arrived at the crash site, they saw the pair holding hands in the wreckage. “You don’t see that every day,” trooper Rod Spencer told KREM. “We actually had to ask her to let go of him so we could get him out of the car.” The Spokane farmers, who had spent almost seven decades together, are survived by four children, 11 grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildren. We're used to the idea of tragic young love like Romeo and Juliet, but it's far more stirring to think of a love that has lasted for so long that it transcends its own tragic end. [Source]
