” They say that true love never ever dies,” stated Mikki’s granddaughter Hayley Davis. “For my grandparents, this was true.”
The Springfield couple were such soulmates– constantly “enjoyed be together”– that they would have hated “being here without the other,” Davis firmly insisted.
” As sad as it, it’s better they’re together,” Davis stated. “I just think they really could never ever be apart.”
The couple– called “Papa Sid” and “Bubbie” by their grandkids– had met 30 years earlier and wed in 1999, their obit says. Both had children from previous marital relationships.
” They hung on each other’s every word,” David told the Daily Voice.
” She was constantly in the kitchen cooking, he was seeing her with a look. Whenever he spoke, she was just enthralled with him. They were actually crucial to each other.”
They invested the last couple of years in an assisted living facility together after Mikki was identified with Alzheimer’s in the summer of2017 She had actually been initially to fall ill, but returned house after evaluating negative for the bug after an initial hospitalization on March25 She then checked favorable on April 7, passing away later that day, Davis revealed.
Sid then checked positive and passed away while the household was still mourning.

Davis used the heartbreak to alert buddies on Facebook that COVID-19 “is very, very real.”
” Do your part and keep your range so we can all return to normalcy. My household lost 2 really crucial people to this,” she said, pleading, “Please remain safe.”
