Pat Boone's wife dead

IANS  |  Los Angeles 

Shirley Boone, the wife of Pat Boone, has died. She was 84.

Shirley passed away peacefully on Friday morning at the pair's home in after suffering complications from vasculitis, which she had contracted less than a year ago, reports people.com.

In her final moments, Shirley was surrounded by her husband of 65 years and the couple's four daughters, Cherry, Lindy, Debby and Laury, all of whom were by her bedside hymns to her as she passed on.

Following her death, Pat, 84, said he intended to meet his longtime love again someday because, as he put it, she just changed addresses.

"We lived a wonderful, blessed life together for 65 years. I've parted with my better half for a little while… but we don't die, we just move on to another place, and today was moving day," Pat said of his high school sweetheart.

"She's changed her address is all and moved to a different mansion that I expect to join her in one day."

"I'm very confident of that," Pat added. "That took the sting out of what happened today because we know we're gonna be together again and have a whole new beginning."
