LIFE   :   DECEMBER 4, 2013

True love exists. For proof, you have to look no further than Eleanor Witt Turner and Frank Eugene Turner. The couple, both 87 years-old, were married for 65 years. The two lovebirds were born on the same day, spent a lifetime of joy together and couldn't stand to be apart. That's why, when they both fell ill, it wasn't a surprise what tragically happened.

The two were married in December of 1948. In the past month, they both suffered severe strokes.
