After Her Husband Departs What Happens To Her 40 Minutes Later Left Me Stunned

Thousands of couples every year recite the vow "Till Death Do Us Part", but many of them take this vow for granted. One Brazilian couple went the distance with their undying love!
Decades of Commitment
The duo's journey had been a beautiful one, Italvino and Diva Poss met in 1948 at a dance. From that moment on, they were inseparable and completely in love. They lived a long and happy life until Italvino fell ill and passed away with Diva dying only 40 minutes after her love.
A Life Of Love
They went on to be married shortly a year after they met. One of their grandchildren recalls that Italvino always included the year before they wed as part of their marriage, because he viewed marriage as an eternal commitment that started when they first met. They were blessed with 10 great children, which later on gave them 14 grandchildren and a family full of love. Not a minute apart was spent between the lovebirds, it was a life filled with romance!
In their latter years, Italvino was diagnosed with Leukima and Diva was going through chemotherapy for a tumor found in her bladder. Diva could tell she was nearing the end of her time and asked her children and close family members to come to the hospital and say their goodbyes. Italvino and Diva were at the same hospital, deteriorating quickly. The staff was kind enough to move them into the same room and right next to one another. They both had accepted that the end was nearing but wanted to spend it with the most important people.
A Peaceful Goodbye
Surrounded by their loved ones, hand in hand Italvino passed away. Rafael, one of their grandchildren, recalls that after one of Diva's daughters broke the news of Italvino's passing, a look of peacefulness spread across Diva's face. Only forty minutes later, Diva passed away as well. They literally could not bear to be apart and it was simply there time. Diva was off to spend eternity with Italvino in everlasting love.
A Story Of True Love
There is no explanation or medical reasoning as to why Italvino and Diva died only minutes apart, however we can choose to believe that it was a small miracle to keep soulmates together for all of eternity. True love knows no bounds, not even death can break a bond that strong.
