The power of love is absolutely indescribable. It can heal and restore, connect and enlighten.
Cayce Lucca recently shared the story of her own grandparents’ love and the beauty of it is heartbreaking.
Through all their years together, their love never wavered. Though things might get hard sometimes, they refused to give up on each other.
Last year, on September 9, 2016, it was clear Cayce’s grandmother wasn’t going to last much longer. As she took her final breaths, her husband leaned over her hospital bed, kissed her on the forehead, and whispered these words that left the rest of their family in tears:
“I have always been true to you for seventy years,” he told her. “There has never been anyone else for me and there never will be, you are my sweetheart and I will be lost without you. I loved you all of those years. I will be with you before very long. You are my only one.”
With that, she quietly slipped away into eternity.
Cayce knew her grandmother’s passing was incredibly hard on her grandfather. He never wanted to be away from his bride. He began to weaken and eventually became paralyzed and couldn’t communicate anymore.
A few days ago, though, Cayce looked over at her grandfather and saw something that took her breath away. He had begun to reach out for something…or someone.
Cayce and her mother believed he was waiting for his bride to come to him and take him with her to eternity. On Saturday, their suspicions were confirmed.
On September 9, 2017, exactly one year after his wife went to heaven, he followed her there.
“Can you believe that My grandma and Grandpa passed away on the same exact day?” Cayce asked in wonder. “That is true love. Not coincidence and if you say it is coincidence, you are mistaken. These things are out of the ordinary.”
After one long year apart, this loving pair is “finally at peace and together again.” And Cayce knows exactly what her grandfather said as soon as he saw his bride:
“I have always been true to you for seventy years. There has never been anyone else for me and there never will be, you are my sweetheart and I was lost without you. I loved you all of those years. I am with you now and forever. You are my only one.”
