About Joseph Nichols, Sr.

These two people had a great love for each other. They were both very ill and knew their time was near. So they lay in bed and would discuss who would go first, of course in French. He didn't want to live without her and she didn't want to live without him. It was amazing to watch. She finally talked him into letting her go first and she did on 8/31/61. I remember back then wakes were at home. Her body was in the living room. He couldn't walk, so two family members (I can't remember who, maybe someone else does) got a sheet for him to sit on like a chair, he had his arms around their necks and they carried him into the living room to see her. I don't remember him saying anything just looked at her. The next day was her funeral. When we got back to the house from the cemetery, he asked if she was ok. They told him yes and he died that day 9/3/61. Three days after her. They were married 62 years.

Story told by Anna Jo Taylor who is the eldest great grandchild from Anna Nichols Narcisse.
