Late in 2016, Trent Winstead, an 88-year-old man from Nashville, Tennessee, was admitted to St. Thomas West Hospital due to kidney failure. His wife of 64 years, Delores, stayed by his side, holding his hand. However, Trent’s heart began to weaken as a result of dialysis, and his condition quickly deteriorated.
Trent and Delores had met in the 1950s and had been inseparable ever since. They had two children, three grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren. But now, it seemed that their time together was running out.
One night, Delores complained of a headache and became seriously ill with a brain aneurysm. Hospital officials allowed her to share a room with her husband, and she was placed in a bed beside him, hooked up to a ventilator. The couple, hand in hand, were facing their toughest challenge yet.
On December 9th, 2016, Delores passed away, with Trent by her side. Their son Eddie informed Trent of his wife’s passing, and Trent blew her a kiss. Two hours later, Trent passed away as well.
Days later, the couple was laid to rest. Delores was placed in a pink casket and Trent in a blue one – the prince and princess, together forever. As their daughter, Sheryl Winstead, said: “I feel like God sent my mom and dad together and they left together. It’s just really sweet.”
