Hospital staff were shocked at his first words after being revived!
It is every couple’s dream to be with their loved one even until after death. Unfortunately, not many couples last long enough, especially with divorce and marriage annulment easily available.
But for this old couple, nothing can keep them apart—even death.
As Joe Leifken was nearing death, he had only one wish: to dine with his wife at her favourite restaurant, Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse. But before he could even fulfil his wish, he died of heart failure at St. Claire’s Hospital at Denville. But it wasn’t the end of their story.
A mere 10 minutes after his death, he was successfully revived by the hospital’s staff. But what shocked the staff was what he shouted once he regained consciousness: “Ruth’s Chris!”
Even after death, he never forgot his last wish of dining with his wife. His wife, Margie, was happy to see her husband get a second chance in love and in life. All she could say was: “We’re just closer.”
