Neighbors Sing to Man Who Thought He'd Have to Spend 92nd Birthday Alone Due to Quarantine
An old man thought he would have to spend his 92nd birthday alone amid self-isolation due to coronavirus pandemic until his neighbors decided to do something special for him.
Coronavirus pandemic has people around the world locking themselves indoors as they do their part to flatten the curve. Most countries in the world are currently in lockdown.
Almost all of the major events around the world have been canceled due to the pandemic. Common folks, as well as celebrities, are postponing their weddings. TV show hosts have started broadcasting from the comfort of their homes.
The anxiety caused by the uncertainty that surrounds us might make little joys of life seem insignificant, like celebrating birthdays, for instance.
The current situation has made it unsafe for people to gather together for merrymaking, but it doesn't mean that some people won't feel sad when they don't get to be with their loved ones during a special time.
He was so sad he couldn’t have any visitors and then this happened.
Such was the case of Peter Sheen, a pensioner who just turned 92. Sheen, who is currently in isolation, was sad because he thought that he wouldn't see anyone on his 92nd birthday.
However, unbeknownst to the old man, his friends and neighbors were determined to make him feel loved on his special day by giving him a surprise.
In a video shared by his granddaughter Beth Pickard, Sheen stood on his doorstep while his neighbors and friends serenaded him with a happy birthday song.
In another story, a Massachusetts woman named Millie Erickson thought she would be alone for her 100th birthday amid isolation but her visitors gathered outside her nursing home and serenaded her.
Erickson's nursing home at Sterling Village has temporarily tightened its visitation policy following the corona outbreak to ensure the safety and sound health of the elderly.
According to her son, Gary, Erickson was thrilled to see everybody and that she has lived a long and good life. "It was really nice that they let us do that," he told "WCVB."
