[Solved] Script that calls long lasting commands every hour

Hi to all,
I would like to create a script that once executed launches long lasting commands (every one lasts about 2 hours) and I would like to be able to terminate the main script without killing the commands which are already running.
Doing something like this:

 #!/bin/bash
 
while true; do 
    longLastingCommand.sh &
    sleep 3600; 
done

permit me to call the longLastingCommand.sh every hour, but when I use ctrl+c to close the script, all the istances of longLastingCommand still running are immediately killed.
Can you help me please?

Using

nohup [command] &

is the solution.
