Long-married couple Frank and Eleanor Turner were together nearly 65 years before they died hours apart, neither having any idea that the other also passed.

A picture of the couple's dual obituaries made the rounds on Reddit on Monday:

According to their local newspaper, Eleanor died in Monroe, N.C. on the morning of November 29 while in hospice care. Hours later, Frank followed her.

Unaware that his wife had died, he suffered respiratory failure and passed away.

It's fitting, in a bittersweet sense, as the couple's love story is one for the ages.

Frank and Eleanor met at a car dealership way back in 1948 where Frank was shopping for a new vehicle and Eleanor was working as a secretary.

Landry Thompson, a 13-year-old dance student, was taken into custody after falling asleep in her teacher's car in a bizarre case that many feel involves racial profiling.

The teen traveled from Oklahoma to Houston along with instructor Emmanuel Hurd to spend the weekend dancing and training with some of the industry’s best.

But that dream of a visit took an ugly turn shortly after leaving the studio.

Saturday night, the exhausted group stopped off at nearby gas station.

“We were on the GPS trying to figure out where the hotel was," said Thompson of the night in question. "And we sat there and we dozed off.”

Before they knew it, the police showed up and surrounded the car.

The most popular names of 2013 have been revealed, and despite some trendy new entries, it doesn't look like traditional choices are going anywhere.

With the exception of Madison, which has been replaced by Emily, all of the 10 highest ranking girls' names are the same as they were in 2012.

There were no newcomers on the top 10 boys' list at all.

Cute Baby

Sophia continues a four-year reign as the number one girls' name, while Aiden has been kicked down to number two behind Jackson among boys.

Although they may not be in the top ten, other naming patterns emerged in the past 11 months that prove not everyone wants the common one.

Based on a BabyCenter survey, the Duck Dynasty stars and HBO's Girls influenced name trends. As did "Skyler" and "Jesse" from Breaking Bad.

Follow the jump for the 100 most popular baby names of 2013 for both boys and girls ... can you guess what they are? And would you use them?

Sunny Obama is serious about dog biscuits and he'll mow down a toddler to prove it!

Despite Michelle Obama's attempts to hold the excited dog back, the First Family's second Portuguese water dog knocked a two-year old girl over at a recent White House function.

No worries though. The little girl is fine and immediately set about petting the pup while the dog gave her kisses (i.e. licked the food crumbs from the girl's face. Probably. Toddlers are notoriously crumb-riddled.)

Knowledge that the little girl was okay did not stop the internet from erupting with hilarious and satirical tweets about the event.

Apparently Christopher Walken wasn't paying attention when his mother told him not to accept rides from strangers.

That turned out to be a cool thing for the two fans who picked him up on the side of a New York street when they saw him trying--and failing--to hail a cab.

We can't be certain, but they probably did this when he climbed in the back seat of their sedan:

Amidst the debates about fat-shaming and fit-shaming and often unattainable standards of beauty, one advocacy group is making sure that people know that there's beauty in what others deem imperfect.

Pro Infirmis, an organization for the disabled, launched a campaign to represent real people who live with conditions such as spine malformations and brittle bone disease through disabled mannequins based on the bodies of those living with the physical disabilities.

Their tagline: "Because who is perfect? Get closer."

After the disabled mannequins were created and the models' amazement and happiness at seeing their statuesque representations was documented, Pro Infirmis partnered with a Zurich department store to place the mannequins in the display windows.

Georgia Wendy's employee Amy Seiber was arrested, fined and obviously fired for serving a customer a cheeseburger with a free extra topping: marijuana.
