Neil and Tina Carruthers were a couple so dedicated to each other, nothing could separate them… not even death.

They fell in love almost instantly after meeting. Neil knew that Tina had cancer in the past and it could return, but that didn’t scare him away. He said he wanted to spend whatever time she had left with her and together. When her cancer eventually returned and was stealing her life away from her, something unexpected happened to Neil.

Tina was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor when she was in high school. After several surgeries and treatments, she was deemed cancer-free. Then she met Neil.

They married shortly after meeting on a Christian dating website. Then, Tina’s cancer returned with a vengeance.

Tina was dying in hospice care after a long battle with the cancer. Then one day, after visiting Tina, something unexpected happen: Neil collapsed to the floor. Emergency workers tried to revive him but failed – Neil was pronounced dead.

Rosanne, Neil’s mother, broke the news to Tina that something happened to Neil. Rosanne said, “I know she understood. When I came home, I went in and held her hand and told her, ‘Tina, he didn’t make it, he’s going to have to be there waiting for you.’ And tears rolled down her cheeks.”

46 hours later, Tina died too.

To this day, doctors cannot explain how or why Neil died. If it’s possible to die of a broken heart, this is it.
