Couple Married For The Last 64 Years Spend Their Final Moments Together Before Leaving For Heaven.
In Nashville, Tennessee, in late 2016, 88-year-old Trent Winstead was put into St. Thomas West Hospital because of failing kidneys. His wife, Delores stood by her husband in his bed, holding his hand. Dialysis started to weaken his heart, and Delores and their children could only watch as he was going downhill. It didn’t look good.
Trent and Delores met in the 1950s and married soon after Trent returned from the Korean War. He treated her like a princess, and she him… like a prince.
Through the years, they were blessed with 2 children, three grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren. But now it looked like Trent’s time on earth was coming to an end.
A few nights later, 83-year-old Delores started complaining of a headache, and became violently ill. She had suffered a brain aneurysm. Hospital officials gave approval for her to be in the same room with her husband, and she was put in a bed beside him, hooked up to a ventilator. And now, she too, was going downhill fast.
The couple, side by side, held hands. They had been married for 64 years and had been through so much together. And now, they were facing their toughest time… together.
On December 9th, just after 9 p.m., Delores took her last breath. Their son, Eddie, leaned over his father to tell him that his beloved wife had just died. Trent looked over to his sweet wife, and blew her a kiss. Two hours later, Trent joined Delores.
Days later, the couple was laid to rest… Delores in a pink casket and Trent in a blue one. Ever the princess… and ever the prince.
