Brazilian couple Italvino and Diva Poss were together 65 years when they both began battling cancer.
When Diva's condition recently deteriorated, she called her family together to be by her and her husband's side. "She felt that her time was coming and asked to see her relatives," the couple's grandson Rafael Max shared.
"My grandfather went to [her room in the] hospital too. They had a private conversation together and after that they both seemed at peace with everything."

Nurses kindly moved Italvino into the vacant bed next to his wife so they could hold hands. He was the first to pass.
"After he died my aunt whispered in my grandmother's ear that my grandfather had passed away in peace," Rafael explained. "At that moment she became more peaceful. It was as if he had opened the doors for her to go too, as if he was arranging for them both to be together forever."
Diva died 40 minutes later.

The duo's journey to this point had been a beautiful one. After meeting at a dance in 1948, Italvino knew he was destined to marry Diva.
"[My grandfather] always said that they had been married for a year longer, because he counted it from the day they met. He considered their marriage one eternal date," Rafael shared.
After welcoming a total of 10 children and 14 grandchildren, the pair never lost the romance in their relationship. He even cooked her breakfast every single day. "I've never seen anything like it," Rafael told Express UK.
