In an unbelievable twist of fate, a husband and wife who were born on the same day and spent over seven decades together died this month just one day apart.

According to their son Les Brown Jr, 94-year-old Helen Brown died on July 16 of stomach cancer while 94-year-old Les Brown died the next day after battling Parkinson's disease. It's a sad yet poetic end to their otherwise amazing love story.

The Browns were both reportedly born on New Years Eve in 1918. They met and became sweethearts in high school before eloping at the age of 18, despite their parent's disapproval. Last September, they celebrated their 75th anniversary.

"It was a real love match, wasn't it. They were together every day for 75 years," Brown Jr. told the Long Beach Press-Telegram. His brother Daniel confirmed his account, saying, "My mom often said she didn't want to see my father die and he didn't want to live without her."

Aww ... doesn't that just bring tears to your eyes?! What an absolutely amazing story. Their relationship sounds like one out of a fairytale. Clearly, these two were meant to be each other's soulmates. And though they might be gone now, I don't think their love will ever be forgotten, particularly by those closest to them.
