How can a couple that’s been married for 60 years say goodbye to each other?

Billie Breland came up with a way before she died last week at the age of 83. She left her husband, James, a note in her checkbook that may make you a little misty.

News of the note was passed on by her grandson Cliff Sims, who is a journalist on a local Alabama website called Yellowhammer. Sims refers to his grandmother as “Mimi” and said there were complications after she had surgery on a broken hip.

“Every day my Grandaddy stayed by her side in the hospital taking care of her, just as he’d done for every one of the 60 years they’d been married — right up until the night she passed,” Sims wrote in his story on the site. “I heard so many stories about the impact my Mimi had on people’s lives over the years…But I couldn’t help but think about my Grandaddy — the single kindest, most generous man I’ve ever known — having to wrestle with the Earthly loss of his sidekick of over six decades.”

Sims tweeted a picture of his grandparents on their wedding day.

He also posted a memorial photo on Facebook.
