ST. LOUIS, MO (KMOX) - What makes love last for decades? A couple who passed just a month apart, set an example for future generations.

Married in 1961, Arthur and Maggie Kelley spent the last few years in a long-term care room as Maggie declined due to dementia.

Reporter Cara Anthony with Kaiser Health News heard about their 60-year love story and reached out to their children.
