An assisted living facility in Brandon, Florida shared a video on Facebook of a couple who has been married for 60 years reuniting with one another after being separated during the pandemic.
“We got to witness these two resident love birds see and hug each other for the first time since the pandemic. Get your tissues out!” Rosecastle at Delaney Creek wrote on Facebook.
After being separated for 215 days, 80-year-old Joseph Loreth and his wife Eve, who is also 80 years old, held each other tight and cried after finally being back together in person.
Back in March, Joseph was taken to the hospital for surgery and ended up spending the next few months in the hospital recovering. His wife was not allowed to visit him and the only way they could communicate was over the phone and do window visits.
The assisted living facility said, “After graduating from rehabilitation, Joseph was finally able to be reunited with Eve (one of our newest residents) and the rest of our Rosecastle family.”
Footage showed a Rosecastle employee wheeling Joseph into a living area where Eve was sitting. She was surprised to see her husband and immediately got up to hug him. Take a look at the emotional moment they shared below.
