Let the waterworks commence. In a real-life Notebook-esque love story, a Bakersfield, CA, couple died within hours of each other after having been married nearly 62 years.

Over the course of their six-decade-long relationship, Don and Maxine Simpson met in a bowling alley, traveled the world, and adopted two boys. According to their granddaughter, Melissa Sloan, they did everything together.

"All Don wanted was to be with his beautiful wife. He adored my grandmother, loved her to the end of the earth," she told the local news station. They even held hands until the very end. Watch the touching video above, and have some tissues handy.
