Love is supposed to be one of the strongest forces in the world, and for one South Dakota couple, love even seems to have beaten out death. This couple had been married for over 60 years and were able to die within minutes of each other. Henry and Jeanette De Lange both died on July 31st in the same hospital room, surrounded by their family. Jeanette passed away first, at the age of 87, after a long battle with Parkinson's disease. Eighty-six year old Henry passed away 20 minutes later from prostate cancer. The couple's children report that their father felt like he did not need to hang on any more after his wife and partner of 63 years passed away.
