The coronavirus crisis separated Gordon and his wife Mary for many months. The two British spouses lived in different nursing homes and the sanitary restrictions imposed in England forced them not to see each other for a long time.
It was only on Monday, the day when certain restrictions were eased in the country, that the two retirees were able to meet again, reports the HuffPost. The scene worthy of a romantic film was immortalized and then published on the retirement home’s Facebook page.
“Thank you for sharing something so beautiful”
In this video, we can see Mary leaving aside her walker to fall into the arms of her dear and tender. The two lovers were then able to embrace and then kiss, simple gestures that they had not been able to do for a long time.
This beautiful story of reunion moved England. On social media, this touching video drew a lot of sympathetic comments. “It’s so moving and the love they both have, it’s inspiring (…) thank you for sharing something so beautiful,” commented one Internet user. To avoid being separated again, Gordon has finally decided to take a room in the establishment where his wife lives.
