Two Manitoba couples who have been married for decades are calling on government to help keep them together despite health needs forcing them apart.
After 71 years of marriage, Dorothy and Allen Smith have only spent two weeks without each other. That changed in May when Dorothy, 92, was admitted to hospital, then to a long-term care facility in Brandon, after a fall.
Read this heartbreaking and gut-wrenching here. This shouldn’t happen to anyone, let alone a couple together for 71 years. Very sad.
