married for 63 years, and their faith was strong until the very end. courtney collen reports. after they married in 1953, the journey of life took henry and jeanette de lange to platte. he was a korean war veteran and she -- a musician and loving mother to their five children. it wasn't until sunday, july 31st -- when their children got a call from the platte care center. (lee de lange/son) "they said both your mom and dad aren't doing very well at all. highly recommended that we get there as soon as we could." his mom at 87, suffered from alzheimer's disease -- and had been in a nursing home since 2011. (lee de lange/son) "dad visited mom once every day, twice every day, a lot of times three times every day. it was just very sweet. wednesday, thursday, she had stopped eating and stopped drinking. so she was dehydrating." his dad at 86 -- was battling prostate cancer. (lee de lange/son) "the va was doing as much as they could
4:39 pm
weeks ago. they said there really isn't more we could do." and after some recent bad falls, henry's condition also got worse. (lee de lange/son) "he said i need to go to the nursing home. he got checked into the hospital until they could get a room. they put mom and dad in the same room which was very sweet." that time got sweeter -- because henry and jeanette were back together. and on that sunday, two of their five children were with them as well -- knowing there wasn't much time left. (lee de lange/son) "he said youda pulse is worse. i wonder if he'll go first. about five minutes later, the aide came in and said i think you're mom is going to go very soon. so t was about 5 after 5 at that time." and not long after, at 5:10, she did. (lee de lange/son) "we read psalm 103, which the pastor had read in the afternoon to her. we didn't quite get done with it. she passed away very, very peacefully. my brother keith said to my dad, he said dad, mom's gone to heaven. you don't

(lee de lange/son) "it's one of those things that you don't pray for because it almost seems mean but you couldn't ask for anything more beautiful." but it doesn't end there. the clock on the wall told another story. (lee de lange/son) "i turned around and looked at the clock on the wall, and it said 5:30. and i said well that's odd. i looked at my watch on my wrist, it said five to six. it stopped at 5:30, the exact time that he passed away." something they just can't explain.
