Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! (Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective!)

My wife is right, I am anal retentive...., so now I keep a can of WD-40 next to the toilet! (Sometimes I feel like I'm just a bobble-head on the highway of life!)

True Love!


Pictured: Jeanette and Alexander Toczko via their daughter's Facebook page  -- SAN DIEGO - A San Diego couple married for 75 years told their children they wished to die in each other's arms, so when it was time, the couple's wish was fulfilled.  Jeanette and Alexander Toczko hated being apart from one another. According to their son, Richard, "They were boyfriend and girlfriend when they were 8 years old."  "My dad carried around a picture of my mother in her Holy Communion outfit in his wallet," added daughter Aimee Toczko-Cushman.  The Toczkos' children said their parents lived a life-long love affair.  "Their hearts beat as one from as long as I can remember," said Toczko-Cushman.  Married in 1940, the couple moved to San Diego in the early 1970s.  Alexander found another love -- golf.  "He would be waiting in the chair with his putter," said Toczko.  Alexander played every day at Balboa Golf Course until recently.  "He must have fallen. He broke his hip," said Toczko. His health took a turn for the worse, and Toczko said, "He was going fast."
In a scene reminiscent of the Ryan Gosling weepy, The Notebook, 96-year-old Jeanette Toczko was still clutching the hand of her 95-year-old husband, Alexander Toczko, when she died less than 24 hours after him.

Mr and Mrs Toczko from San Diego, California, first met at the age of eight, married in 1940, and went on to have five children and 10 grandchildren together.

Mr Toczko’s health started to decline just weeks before his death, after he broke his hip, and soon after Mrs Toczko’s health also began to decline, leaving the couple bed bound.

Knowing their parents’ final wish, the couple’s children arranged for a local hospice to provide a special bed to allow the couple to spend their last days side by side.

When the time came, it was Mr Toczko, a war veteran, who passed away first.

Talking about the moment she broke the news to her mother, the couple’s daughter, Aimee Toczko-Cushman, told 10 News: ‘When I told my mother that he was gone, she hugged him and she said, “See this is what you wanted.

You died in my arms and I love you. I love you, and wait for me, I’ll be there soon”.’



She went on: ‘Even the hospice nurse said it was the most incredible thing to see the two of them taking those last breaths together,’

Was there ever a truer love?
