Love in the time of coronavirus

Connecticut man Bob Shellard found a heartwarming way to celebrate his wedding anniversary. For the first time in their marriage, Bob and his wife Nancy were forced to spend their anniversary apart. Nancy was at her nursing home during the anniversary. Under normal circumstances, Bob visits Nancy at her nursing home daily. But such visitations are restricted now across the state because of the escalating COVID-19 outbreak. However, Bob was determined to meet his wife. So, he showed up outside Nancy's medical facility with balloons and a placard that said, "I’ve loved you for 67 years and still do. Happy Anniversary," as per media reports.

Nancy responded to her husband's gesture by waving and blowing kisses from the window of her second-floor room. Bob told the media that it made him feel bad because his wife was not with him and that he would never want anybody else, other than her. Bob and Nancy's daughter Laura said she has learned a lot from her parents and all that they've shared in their 67 years of marriage. She told the media that they have been an example for her and her siblings and that they have learned a lot from them.

This picture was shared on Twitter and has garnered hundreds of responses that called the moment "heartbreaking." Others shared their own concern for their own loved ones in nursing homes around the country.
