Sara has been working and writing online for so many years, she's unsure if she is still in corporeal form. She considers herself a jack of all trades, but would prefer it if you would stop calling her "Jack."

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.

Their daughter, Linda Purser, is mourning the loss of her parents but is comforted by knowing that they passed on together, "I wanted them to be together because they couldn’t tolerate being apart." It may not have been perfect, but this was true love. Source
