Sandra and Giancarlo who are 71 and 73 years old respectively were marking their 50th year in marriage and medical staff decided to honour their union in the sweetest way possible.
According to Dailymail, they both were confined in bed and had ventilators over their head but still had a passion for each other.

Nurses and other medics did not want the day to go uncelebrated so they organized a small party and took photos of the memorable moment.
They pushed Giancarlo’s bed next to his wife’s and as soon as he was close to her, he stretched his hand and reached out for Sandra’s grip.
The two were together even in thick times and clutched onto each other without looking at one another’s face.
Sandra burst into tears as she worried about her husband’s wellbeing and wondered whether he would beat the dreaded disease.
“Sandra cried a lot, not for herself, she was worried about her husband,” a nurse called Roberta Ferretti said.
According to her, Giancarlo said he still loved his better half even after being together for more than five decades.
The celebration could only go on for ten minutes and even though it was short-lived, there was no dry eye in the room.
The kind medics bought a cake and a candle shaped like the number 50 then hosted a cake cutting ceremony.
The group took photos and sent them to the couple’s kids afterward.
