Amy & Mike Nappa went to a Mimi’s Café in California for their first date, way back in their college days. They got engaged 10 days later, and married just a few months after that.


Thirty years later Mike & Amy had their last date in a Hospice room, on the top floor of a Colorado hospital.


Yes, they held hands.


And yes, Mike kissed her goodnight.
