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.
