    Inseparable couple dies on the same day

    I don't know quite how it happens...sometimes appears as very uncommon cases, but it is said sometimes the bond between a husband and wife can be so strong that nothing can sever it. Not even death itself.

    The University of Arkansas at Little Rock professor Terry Trevino-Richard once studied the phenomenon, in an article titled "Death Timing Among Deceased Married Couples in a Southern Cemetery." he wrote:

    "There is ample evidence that individuals may subconsciously or deliberately hasten or postpone their own death by aiming toward a psychologically important date,".

    Here below is a list of few reported cases of spouses deaths (note: The date shown is when the matter was reported in the reviewed source). It is not an intention to reveal in all cases what was the cause, but just to see some few examples for which I've tried to compile:

    Case No. 1 - May 21, 1882

    Case No. 5 -Wednesday, Oct. 1, 2008
    After 68 years of marriage, Bill and Eldrid Walker died together—within 20 hours of each other and on the same day—even though they were in separate facilities and Eldrid hadn't seen her beloved husband since a stroke a week prior.( )

    Case No. 6 February 15, 2008

    Their story of love and long-term devotion showcases an aspect of humanity that science has a hard time explaining: that sometimes strength of will decides whether we live or die.

    Case No. No. 9: 25 Feb 2010
    Dr. S.R. Mpenzire (rtd lecturer) of civil engineering who passed away in Lugalo hospital on 10 February, 2010 and his wife who passed away on the same day in Muhimbili hospital, Dar es Salaam. (UHANDSI FLASH NEWS:

    Hii ni kweli kabisa bwana ngoswe, case no 9 walikuwa wanaishi tegeta na walikuwa majirani wa ndugu yangu na nilihudhuria mazishi yao. Alianza kuzikwa mama huko mbagala na kesho yake tukamzika baba makaburi ya kinondoni. Walipishana kufariki masaa kama matano hivi.
