Couple Die Within Minutes Of Each Other

Posted: Updated:

A Florida couple took their final journey together when they passed away within minutes of each other.

Tom and Naomi Shirley both died last Saturday.

Tom Shirley had been hospitalized with heart issues and Naomi's heart stopped while on her way to visit him.

The double-deaths came as a shock to the couple's grown children, who say neither knew the other had died.

"He never knew she left and she never knew he was gone.  But both left within ten to twelve minutes of each other," said their daughter, Melanie Davis.

Their son, Troy Shirley, said, "You have to look at it in a romantic way. They did everything together."

The couple's other son, Tom Shirley, says they both shared a love for the outdoors.

The family says they are upset but grateful that one of them was not left without the other.
