We know this is not really "Elements Magazine" per se, but we've come across this touching story that we just had to post about it.





GEORGE TOWN: It was love at first sight when they met and their marriage lasted 66 years.

The love between Ho Khye Soo, 90, and his wife Ong Phin Nyar, 82, seemed so great that even death could not separate them when they passed away about three hours apart.

Ho died at 5.45pm on Sunday at their home in Bandar Baru Air Itam while praying for his ailing wife, who died at 9.10pm.

Their eldest son Prof Dr King Kok, 65, said his father was relatively healthy and had no illness.

“He visited my mum, who was in a coma due to kidney failure, at a hospital a day before they died. We tried to prevent him from visiting her as we did not want him to feel bad,” he said at his parents’ home yesterday.

“However, he took matters into his own hands and hired a taxi to go to the hospital. He was quite upset when he saw my mum.”

He said the family had wanted to bring their mother home but Ho died before they could inform him of their decision.

“But he went ahead of mum and she followed him, like she always had in life.”

“They met at my mother’s hometown in Padang Serai during the Japanese Occupation. My dad was a surveyor and happened to be in the town. He was 24 while my mum was 16. She was strikingly beautiful with fair skin and my dad fell for her at first sight,”
he said.



If this doesn't melt the coldest of hearts, we don't know what will.
Our deepest condolences to their family. The couple has taught everyone a very inspiring lesson on love.
