Last month Peter DeMarco's life came crashing down around him when he lost his 34-year-old wife and "soulmate" Laura Levis to asthma. She’d suffered a devastating attack and died a week later.

Having spent seven days in intensive care, tirelessly cared for by a revolving door of doctors and nurses, Peter decided it only right to thank them for all they did to make her final days comfortable. He penned a letter and publicly posted on his Facebook which has since attracted the attention of countless compassionate strangers as well as the New York Times.

Warning: this gets Notebook-level emotional.

It begins:

He continues to recount all the staff did for him and Laura which was above and beyond their call of duty, including this touching moment which allowed him to be alone with his wife during her final hour.

Now that's true love.
