Touching Moment Woman Shows Grandad Engagement Ring Through Window Due To Coronavirus Isolation

Touching Moment Woman Shows Grandad Engagement Ring Through Window Due To Coronavirus Isolation

COVID-19 is taking hold across the world and with that has come certain restrictions - such as many of us not being able to visit elderly relatives in care homes.

Which is why one woman took things into her own hands after she got engaged over the weekend and showed her sparkly new ring through a window to her isolated grandpa, at the care home he is residing in.

Carly Boyd, 21, said yes to partner Trevor Sellors on 14th March whilst at Cherry Grove Beach in South Carolina and clearly wanted to share the news with her grandad.

However, due to coronavirus, visitation in the Premier Living and Rehab Center in Lake Waccamaw is currently restricted, so the staff suggested she show her grandfather her ring and break her news via the glass window in his room. It was clearly an emotional moment looking at the bittersweet snaps.

The home took to Facebook to share the sweet photos of Carly from North Carolina revealing her news and captioned the post: "Even though visitation is restricted at this time, staff suggested an alternative.

"Here, a resident's granddaughter tells her grandfather that she's engaged! Emotional and memorable, for sure!! Thank you for allowing us to capture this special moment!!"

And it is the cutest thing we've seen this year.

With such worrying events out of our control going on around us, it's so touching to see people pulling together and people remembering not to exclude their older relatives from news and celebrations, even if they are isolating.

Carly told KOLD: "I really wanted to be able to tell my grandfather because he has dementia and there's no phone in there that he has access to.

Adding: "I just ... it was very - oh my gosh, I'm going to cry - it was very special".

"I got really emotional and really sad and I just put my hand on the window, and he put his there too.

"I just told him I love him, and he said 'I love you too and I hope to see you soon', like really see you."

We're welling up here. And it's not the only sweet gesture we've seen amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

An elderly man also based in the US wished his wife who is currently in a care home a happy anniversary through her window too - as the home has also banned visitors.

He held a sign that read: "I've loved you 67 years and still do. Happy Anniversary."

Guys, stop it.
