While the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread fear and anxiety among people, agonizing accounts and pictures of patients are being shared on social media, winning the hearts of the people. The latest picture that has left everyone heartbroken, proves that love blossoms even at the time of a worldwide contagion. Even the deadly coronavirus could not stop this old couple from celebrating their anniversary.
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.
