After over two decades of marriage, a couple began losing their breath, simultaneously taking their last one together. Their deaths left devastation in their wake, leaving the vulnerable behind to fend for themselves.


Thousands of miles apart from one another, a couple spent their anniversary in the ICU. 44-year-old Troy and Charletta Green passed away just hours apart, with their 7 children now mourning.

After choosing to take a trip with the family to Florida, Troy decided to stay home because of his feeling ill. Charletta then had to be taken to hospital soon after arriving in the new state.

Her spouse joined her just 24 hours later in a different part of the country. Troy's wife slowly deteriorated, and she eventually passed away, while he followed a few hours from a heart attack, with his sister Tiki Green expressing:

"We just always knew they were coming home...So for neither of them to come home, words can’t explain how we feel right now."

Tiki has revealed the couple was in the process of thinking about vaccinations but had not done so yet. The grieving sister has since been stressing the importance of getting the vaccine as soon as possible.


These two lovebirds met when they were teenagers and were married for 22 years. They have 7 children aged between 10 years old and 23 years old.

Earlier this year, another husband and wife died hours apart after 70 years of marriage.

The family was quite religious, with Troy as a deacon and the 7 children and their mother joining in on singing with the choir frequently. Tiki has impressed that she is pushing for all the help and support she can get for these kids.


One way this is being done is by creating a GoFundMe page. While they have miraculously surpassed their monetary goal, Asha Serenity Marie, Troy and Charletta's niece pointed out that the response hasn't been all positive, stating:

"A lot of hateful things have been said... regarding to their parents being unvaccinated."

The page has since been disabled due to this backlash, but donations can still be sent to $ashahope96. These funds are meant to go towards a double funeral and general support for the children.


This somewhat romantic yet tragic occurrence is not unique to Troy and Charletta. Earlier this year, another husband and wife died hours apart after 70 years of marriage.

96-year-old Wanda Wold and James "Jim" Wold both passed on July 20, 2021. Jim died just 15 hours after his beloved wife, where he shared a room with her at the Concord Care Center in Garner, Iowa.

Their grandson Dan Engstler shared a post on Facebook expressing his belief that God had a hand in their passing so close to one another. Whatever one may believe about this, these couples' love for each other truly stands the test of time.
