A Missouri couple, who 'never left each other's side' for 65 years, died together on Saturday as they held hands.  

Jack and Harriet Morrison took their last breaths next to one another at a nursing home in Arnold, Missouri. Jack, 86, died first and Harriet, 83, died several hours later. 

The Morrisons went on their first date on the Halloween of 1955 and 'never separated from that day on,' their niece Sue Wagener told the St Louis Post-Dispatch.  

Jack and Harriet met on a bus that Jack was driving as part of his father's company. 

Once they married on May 5, 1956, the pair ran V-K Bus Lines while raising their two sons and Wagener.

Wagener told the Dispatch how Jack would always make sure Harriet had her coffee each morning and would even wake up before she did.
