Soulmates dying 10 minutes apart from each other is showing how these lovers’ story will be living on this week. A strongly bonded couple from the UK who shared 65 years were indeed together until the end. The two were said to literally die only minutes apart because the pair simply could not handle being split. WTVR News reports this Thursday, November 20, 2014, that their romance was simply “huge” and the man in question, Harry Stevenson, died only moments after hearing his wife had passed on.
Talk about a lovers’ story for the ages. In what is being called a “perfect ending,” one set of soulmates passing 10 minutes apart is showing the world the meaning of true love this week. The elderly couple, who were married for over 65 years together in united bliss, apparently weren’t ready to face life without the other by their side. Harry and Mavis Stevenson met at a social club when they were only 16 years old, but that initial spark apparently became a flame that warmed their romance for many years to come.
More details are provided through Daily Mail earlier this morning. Harry and Mavis were reluctant to ever be apart from one another after the two were married. These soulmates apparently had one of the greatest challenges of their lives when the young man at the time was forced to spend several years away in the midst of World War II. When he returned, the couple resolved to never be apart again.
The tale of these two lovers continues as we move forward the present time. After an impressive 65 years of living together, Mavis Stevenson was said to be growing sick and was moved to a local elderly care facility in the UK. So that she wouldn’t be alone, Harry Stevenson followed her, which may have played a fundamental role in the couple of soulmates dying only 10 minutes apart from one another, as the man heard news of her death shortly after it happened. The source site shares that the two also shared a bedroom, and were favorites of the staff at the healthcare community.
Time continued to pass. As Mavis’ health deteriorated, Harry must have sensed the end was near. Earlier this week, when Mavis finally passed away in her bed, Harry was soon told that his wife was gone. Just moments later, the elderly man let go of his hold on life, dying so that he could follow his wife. The relatives of the strongly united duo said that they simply “would not have been able to live without each other,” and that perhaps explains how they managed to pass away in such a small span of time of one another.
Last but certainly not least, the lovers’ adult nephew, Stephen Cresswell, says that Harry and mavis — who were 88 and 89-years-old, respectively — had a “huge romance.” His uncle and aunt were meant for one another, always and forever. The man’s words soon led to the “soulmates 10 minutes apart” story making waves across the Web and warming the hearts of people everywhere. After 65 years of marriage together, they were ready to go on their next great adventure as one.
“I had seen them the day before and I knew Mavis had less time than Harry,” Cresswell finished. “Harry was still quite medically strong. When he died I was quite shocked … It was just a few minutes later and was so special. They would not have wanted to live without each other, so I think it was the perfect ending.”
