Long-time US couple married for 75 years, die one day apart

Los Angeles, Oct. 31 (ANI): A California couple, who were born on the same day and celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary in 2013, died within a day of each other. They were 94.

Helen died on July 16, while the love of her life and her hubby, Les Brown, died the next day, July 17, Presstelegram.com reported.

The duo's friends and family asserted that if two people ever were made for each other, then it was Helen and Les.

The pair, from Long Beach, LA, had been born on the same day, Dec. 31, 1918 and were high school sweethearts.

Their oldest son, Les Jr., said that his parent's love was real and they were together every day for 75 years.

Daniel, the pair's youngest son, insisted that his mom often said she didn't want to see his father die, and he didn't want to live without her. (ANI)
