This is such a sad story, Why couldn’t they have left them alone? Oh yes there it is, The estate. It's all about money.

 

 

A 95-year-old newlywed Virginia man has died just weeks after his 96-year-old wife was taken away by family members to Florida in the US.

Eddie Harrison died in a hospital after suffering from influenza, said Rebecca Wright, who was caring for the couple in their home.

Harrison became distressed after his wife and longtime companion Edith Hill was taken away, Wright said.

Wright is Hill's daughter.

"He lived for her, and she lived for him. It's the love story of the century," Wright said, recalling how they would dance, take walks and care for each other.

Harrison and Hill's marriage this year after 10 years of companionship was disputed in court. Their wedding was problematic because Hill has been declared legally incapacitated for several years.

Another of Hill's daughters, Patricia Barber, contested the marriage, saying it would complicate the eventual distribution of Hill's estate. But Hill and Harrison said they wanted to stay together.

I'm not surprised, honestly. Things like this happens at home all the time, except that it's between the children.

Rest in peace, sir.

I think it's truly sad that they couldn’t live out their lives in happiness,  This was in America where things like a pre nup exists, And the judge could have made some sort of order.

The woman was declared legally incapacitated, so I'm afraid a pre nup might not be possible. But why talking any more? The man's dead, and we don't even know if Hill knows her husband is dead.
