Couple Married 68 Years Die Holding Hands
This story is beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time. Floyd and Margaret Nordhagen were married 68 years. They died Sunday holding hands.
They were killed when 92 year old Floyd, pulled out in front of a truck while driving in Washington state. Troopers who arrived on the scene found them clasping hands in the wreckage. This was no surprise for their friends and family members.
Many have come forward to tell touching stories about Floyd and Margaret. Like when Floyd began to struggle while pushing the lawn mower, and they started pushing it together. Just the picture of that in my head, warms my heart.
And friends shared that Floyd made sure to kiss Margaret every single day, and tell her he loved her. It’s the little things that make a difference. A kiss. A few sweet words.
I would like to imagine that Floyd and Margaret are enjoying every day together in heaven as well. And that getting there at the same time was part of the plan right from the start.
