The couple’s caregiver made a post on Facebook and described how the couple loved each other.

Sharon Gibbons Brown wrote:

“You could feel the love they had for each other the moment you walked into their room they were both so pleasant and humble they accepted me as their caregiver just minutes after meeting them. The very first night I stayed with them they were awake holding hands like 4:00 am in the morning telling each other how much they loved each other. They smiled giggled and play like teenagers falling in love for the first time.”

This is according to an article from CBN News.

That is all there is to it, at least for now. We’ll post updates as soon as we got them.
