Once Tom retired, he and Delma traveled around the US, visiting various campsites across the country.
Delma then became sick and was unable to recover her health.
"They couldn't get a pulse. They couldn't get a blood pressure. They couldn't get anything. Yet mama was just hanging on to something," Nichols said.
That something turned out to be her husband Tom, who fell ill just a few days later.
"We got him over to the nursing home with Mama," Nichols said. "They had pushed their little beds together and Mama was laying right there, facing him. She was asleep and Daddy goes and he reached over there and he grabbed a hold of her hand and he just laid there with her, and it was so sweet."
Tim and Delma even had a joint obituary to keep in line with the way they lived their lives- together as one. The couple is now buried side-by-side at Restwood Memorial Park in Clute, Texas.
"Together for 62 years here on earth and now they will continue to share their love in Heaven."
