LORAIN, Ohio — A Lorain man whose dying wish was to be with his seriously ill wife has lost his battle with cancer.

Matt Monschein, 71, was reunited with his 68-year-old wife, Pat, at Grace Fairview Hospital last Thursday after his sons called Fox 8 Call For Action.

They’d been told their father couldn’t join their mother in her room because Grace Fairview couldn’t provide hospice care.

It turned out no one had asked officials from Grace Fairview for permission, so the couple was brought together last week.

Matt died early Tuesday morning with Pat at his side.
