Devoted elderly couple die within hours of each other.

In a sad but romantic twist of fate, an inseparable elderly couple from Larnaca passed away together last Wednesday after 60 years of marriage.

Loukes Aggelides, the 82-year-old husband, died in the morning following a respiratory problem. He was being treated at the Larnaca's General Hospital, when his lungs collapsed.

His wife and companion, 77-year-old Evgenia Aggelidou, could not bear the pain of losing her beloved husband, and died 11 hours later from a heart attack.

Loukes and Evgenia met during their teens and from that moment they were inseparable, raising a family and remaining together for the rest of their lives. They even worked together for a number of years at the kiosk of Larnaka's Makarios high school.

After a ceremony on Thursday they were buried together, leaving behind two children. Relatives and friends paid their respects and said their last goodbyes to the couple yesterday at the Chrysopolitissa Temple in Larnaca.
