This husband can't see his wife during quarantine, so he celebrates their 67th wedding anniversary from her nursing home's second floor window
If the Coronavirus pandemic has taught us anything, the best way to preserve everyone's health is to avoid contact with each other. All non-essential businesses have been closed and people across the world are experiencing mandatory quarantine.
Perhaps the age demographic that's been affected most by government restrictions are the elderly. Given their low immune function and respiratory issues, they are the least likely to recover from Covid-19 if they contract it. This is why many hospitals and retirement homes are no longer allowing visitors. One elderly man, however, did not let this stop him from celebrating his wedding anniversary with his wife.

Call it "Love in the Time of the Coronavirus" if you will, but Bob wasn't about to let the Covid-19 epidemic stand in the way of celebrating his and his wife Nancy's anniversary together. Bob and Nancy, an elderly couple from Vernon, Connecticut (USA), have been together for 67 years. Although Nancy now lives in a nursing home, that doesn't stop Bob from going to see her everyday. That is, until the mandatory quarantine went into effect.
When Bob found out that quarantine would last at least 30 days, he knew that meant they wouldn't be able to celebrate their 67th anniversary together. That is, until he came up with a clever idea...
When Bob and Nancy's anniversary rolled around, Bob showed up outside Nancy's bedroom window with a sign that read "I loved you 67 years and still do. Happy Anniversary." Although Nancy wasn't able to shower her husband with affection, she blew him kisses from her second floor window.
It goes to show that if you've been together for 67 years, 30 days apart is nothing in the grand scheme of things. The love they feel toward each other doesn't seem to have disippated at all over the last 67 years. By the looks of it, nothing will keep Bob and Nancy apart, not even a second floor window!
