Couple Married For 64 Years Die Holding Hands

Dolores and Trent Winstead were inseparable for over six decades, right up until the end — they passed away within hours of one another. The Nashville couple spent their final moments together holding hands as they lay in hospital beds.

Earlier this month, Trent, 88, was admitted to Saint Thomas West Hospital's intensive care unit after suffering kidney failure. Shortly thereafter, his beloved wife, Dolores, 83, suffered a severe brain aneurysm as she stood by his bedside. Initially, she was placed in a separate room on a ventilator. However, after her condition began to deteriorate, the hospital staff received approval to move the married couple to the same room. The Washington Post reports that Dolores stopped breathing at 9:10 p.m. on December 9th and Trent died at 4 p.m. the following day.

Mr. and Mrs. Winstead's love story began in the early 1950s in Dickson County, Tennessee. They sent each other letters while Trent was stationed overseas in the military. When he returned from serving in the Korean War, he couldn't wait any longer for them to be together, so he decided to pop the question while she was brushing her teeth.

The couple would have celebrated their 64th wedding anniversary on January 17th. In accordance with their wishes, they were buried and laid to rest in pink and blue caskets, respectively, placed side by side. They leave behind two children, three grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren.

Sheryl Winstead, the couple's 57-year-old daughter, tells ABC News that "It's been really hard for me because I was so close to them, and I never expected to lose both my parents at the same time. But, on the hand, I do see the sweet story in this — that they went together happily, and that's the way they wanted it."

It's a match made in pop-punk heaven! Hayley Williams (the lead singer of Paramore) wed her longtime boyfriend, Chad Gilbert (the guitarist of New Found Glory) on February 20th, and music label Atlantic Records is giving us an inside look at their fun rockabilly nuptials in Nashville, Tennessee.

The newlyweds said "I do" at the historic Franklin Theatre, which has special significance to the bride (she and her bandmates helped contribute to its restoration and re-opening, along with other members of the community). The couple's wedding was an homage to everything they love about living in Nashville, and all of their vendors were locally based.

Williams wore a fashion-forward short-sleeved Vera Wang dress with a transparent overlay skirt featuring geometric lace, which she paired with Doc Marten Jadon Boots. Ben Sherman provided the groom's attire. Later on, the bride changed into a reception outfit that was just as true to her rocker style: a UNIF top with her husband's name emblazoned across the front, a TOPSHOP skirt, Vans custom hi-tops and Stance socks.

The couple danced the night away with their wedding guests, including their bandmates, to the sounds of Anthony Adams and The Nite Owls. In another personal touch, they included their dog, Alf, in the wedding photos and festivities!

The pair ended the evening on a sweet note with a three-tiered wedding cake and 100 doughnuts, all by Five Daughters Bakery. Each doughnut included a cheeky quote, such as "I like your butt" and "You're so punk rock." Their cake toppers were equally adorable — the figurines depicted Leeloo from The Fifth Element and Sloth from The Goonies.
