Nev Wild was left devastated after seeing his wife of 48 years Gillian die of breast cancer.
The devoted 69-year-old husband from Derby was not thought to have any health conditions, but after losing his beloved partner, Nev died just six weeks later from a heart aneurysm.
Daughter Cathy Stoneystreet, 42, said:
"After we lost mum, dad was getting on quite well, even though we all knew how much he missed her though.He'd only left her in peace for six weeks and then he left us and went to be with her.I'm sure mum was cursing him in heaven when he arrive so soon after her."The devoted couple first met when they were just five as Gillian lived close to Nev's cousins in Ropley but as soon they were old enough the couple went on their first date to the cinema.
