Though the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic has spread across globally, it could not pull down the spirit of a family from celebrating their grandmother's 95th birthday.

Kathleen Byrne's family had been planning her 95th birthday party for months but were forced to cancel it due to the Coronavirus pandemic. So, they decided to bring the party and a rendition of "Happy Birthday" to her — from a safe distance.
