Earlier this week, Bob a senior citizen residing in Vernon, Connecticut completed 67 years of being happily married to his wife Nancy. However, because of the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, the nursing homes were taking precautions and the couple wasn’t allowed to visit each other. 


So Bob decided to surprise Nancy with a modern take on Romeo and Juliet. He stood outside of her nursing home, holding an adorable sign in front of Nancy’s window along with a bunch of balloons, in a gesture that melted our heart.

In 67 years, this is the first time that this couple is celebrating their first anniversary apart. Which is why Bob made sure that he did something extra special this year. He added:

Here’s a throwback image of the happy couple back in 1953, on the day of their wedding.
