Eddie Harrison died Tuesday in a hospital after suffering from influenza, said Rebecca Wright, who was caring for the couple in their Alexandria, Virginia, home. Harrison became distressed after his wife and longtime companion, 96-year-old Edith Hill, was taken away, Wright said. Wright is Hill’s daughter.
“He lived for her, and she lived for him. It’s the love story of the century,” Wright said, recalling how they would dance, take walks and care for each other.
