        Like a scene from the movie Notebook this is a love story that has captivates our hearts and reminds us that love conquers all even in death……..



        Gordon Yeager 94 and his wife Norma 90 were wed 72 years and shared a real life love story in Iowa. They raised for children, Donna, Roger, Gordon and their youngest son Dennis. They survived a parent’s worse nightmare when both middle sons Roger and Gordon were tragically killed in car crashes.

        'They believed in marriage,' Dennis Yeager, the youngest son commented. 'They chose each other and once they had committed, that was it.'

        Gordon’s family moved to a farm Minnesota and when the Depression hit Gordon came back to Iowa and worked at Chevrolet Garage in State Center, Iowa. That’s when he met Norma still in high school and fell in love with her. He married her on the same day of her graduation in 1939.



        Dennis remember them as a very active couple stating: 'We took family camping trips in Iowa and Canada but spent most of the time at Clear Lake, Minnesota. We rented a cabin and went boating.

        'I remember my Dad, even at almost 60 years old, water-skiing at Clear Lake. One time, when I was driving the boat he disappeared under for such a long time, that my Mom was worried sick.

        'When he eventually surfaced, she screamed at him, ''what were you doing down there?'' to which he yelled back, ''well I wasn't coming back up without my trunks!'''

        The couple enjoyed their golden years and spent 6 months out of the year in Tucson, Arizona.

        There is something to be said about “opposites attract” as Dennis describes them completely different.

        'My Dad was very sociable; he loved doing anything that involved being with people. My Mom was quieter but she would support my Dad in whatever he was doing. She would be there making sure everyone had something to eat, had a drink in their hand.

        'She was such a perfectionist. When they had the garage, she won every award going from Chevrolet for her book-keeping. I remember they would be up together poring over those books until 2am if there was even a penny out of place.'

        'They were not your typical 90-year-olds,' he added.

        Dennis said that his father would continuously say, 'I have to stick around. I can't go until she does because I have to stay here for her and she would say the same thing.'

        Life took a wrong turn for the couple when on a trip into town Gordon mistakenly pulled out in front of another car. Rushed to the hospital in the IC unit they lay together all the while holding hands though non-responsive.

        Gordon died at 3:38pm with hands still clenched something was not quite right. Though Gordon was not breathing his heart monitor kept beeping. Dennis couldn’t understand how that was possible and asked the nurse. She pointed at the couples hands and said that her heart beat was beating through him. Exactly on hour later at 4:48pm Norma died too.

        'Neither one of them would've wanted to be without each other. I couldn't figure out how it was going to work,' said daughter Donna Sheets on what life would have been like for the other if only one had survived.

        We were very blessed, honestly, that they went this way.'

        Dennis said: 'I don't believe there was a big secret to their marriage. Sometimes one or the other would get mad but they worked everything out.

        'In the end, they chose each other and that was it. They were committed.'

          Yes, But you are a grown man now..  Lyfe Jennings says.. crying is like taking your soul to the laundry mat, we all know the feeling of fresh clean clothes, it just feels good!
