New Delhi : They were together when they were alive and they continued togetherness even after their death, as far as we want to believe from the real life incident that happened. In a tragic yet beautiful tale, the US couple died at the same time due to coronavirus after staying married for 47 years.

As per CNN, Leslie and Patricia McWaters both died from Covid-19 on Nov. 24 after being hospitalized with the virus. They were 75 and 78, respectively.

“The hospital staff that cared for them, as they lost their battle to COVID, said it was too close to call. They recorded their deaths at the exact same time,” according to a joint obituary for the couple.

According to their obituary, Patricia worked at Foote Allegiance Hospital in Jackson, Mich. for 35 years as a registered nurse in the OR while Leslie was a truck driver and a veteran of the United States Navy Reserves.

The couple had tied knot in April 16, 1973. The family described them as ‘polar opposites’ because Pat was ‘no nonsense’ and Leslie was ‘fun loving’.

“They literally did everything together and although we’re shocked about it, when we look at it, we also think it’s not so surprising, because they were together all the time and they had so much fun together in life,” one of their two daughters, Joanna Sisk told CNN.

“It’s beautiful, but it’s just so tragic… kind of like Romeo and Juliet,” Sisk added. “One wouldn’t have wanted to be without the other.”

We hope the lovebirds rest in peace.
