Aside from claiming the lives of many people’s loved ones, the coronavirus also separated many from their families. A report even said it contributed to great boredom.
In a video shot by The Epoch Times and shared by Chiekezi Dozie on Facebook, a couple who have been married for 73 years had an emotional reunion after being apart because of the COVID-19.
Shaky hands, strong love
As the woman saw her husband, she opened her arms, repeatedly saying “Oh my God”. The joyful 96-year-old husband, Joseph, quickly wheeled towards his wife as he hugged her.
With their shaky hands, they stayed in each other’s arms as a sign that they have really missed themselves.
God did it
After the woman left the man’s arms, she started crying as she said “Thank you God. Oh My God!” The woman petted his face in a great demonstration of love.
