When they went in for a hospital stay they were housed in separate rooms on the same floor and could not see one another. Tom quickly put an end to this. He told hospital staff, “I just can’t be away from her.”

Tom and Arnisteen Clark have been married 68 years and they haven’t spent a day apart since the Korean War.

The hospital saw that the separation “was clearly breaking their hearts” so they did what they could to keep the senior lovebirds together.
