letters

A mother who got trapped in the snow storm in Buffalo writes letters to her children to say goodbye.  Karen Rossi thought she wouldn't get out alive when her car got buried.  It felt like she was underground.  Luckily she was able to dig out and wave her red snow brush which helped her be seen by a passing motorist.  Her daughters do not want to see the letters that she wrote.  goodbye letters

soulmates until the very end

Harry and Mavis Stevenson spent their 65-year romance together as much as possible.  The worst part was when he had to go away to fight with the Royal Marines in 1943.  Recently Mavis became ill and had to be moved to a home.  Harry couldn't stand to be without her so he moved in as well even though he was still very healthy.  Mavis passed away on November 3.  Nurses informed Harry who was at her side.  He died within 10 minutes of his wife's passing.  In death, they are still together.  true love
