Ken Bembow was moved to tears after he was presented with the best surprise he could ever think of by a caregiver at his assisted facility. He got a pillow with the image of his late wife.


The British veteran who lost his wife nine months ago slept with her photograph each night before his caregiver, Kia Mariah Tobin, bought him a pillow with his wife's face on it.

Tobin, who is a caretaker at Thistleton Lodge in Preston, gifted the 94-year-old the pillow because she realized that sleeping next to a glass framed picture might be harmful.

"It was so touching, it was lovely. The most precious thing anyone could ever wish for."

The veteran who fought in the second world war also had some things to say about his late wife. According to him, they were married for 71 years, and she was the best thing that ever happened to him. He told GMB hosts, Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid,

"She was the most loving, caring, beautiful wife anyone could wish to have. She never did a thing wrong in her life."


Tobin, who just recently moved into the facility to help prevent the residents from COVID-19, revealed that her intention was for giving Bembow the gift was to put a smile on the 94-year-old's face.

She described the experience as "amazing" because, for something that didn't cost a lot, it sure brought him a lot of happiness.

Another heartwarming story that is trending is that of the teenagers who had no idea that their pictures were being taken while they helped an elderly man who fell.

The boys were driving to a basketball court when they saw Jose Gomez on the floor after having difficulties moving with his walker.


According to Hernandez, one of the boys, they all ran out of the car, decided to walk him home, and they helped clean the minor injury he suffered from the fall.

Another story is that of an adorable couple who has been married for 63 years, Jerry and Beverly Lindell. According to the news outlet, Kare, Beverly made a wish ahead of her 84th birthday to see her husband, who was being quarantined at a nursing home.

The birthday wish came through, and the couple shared a long embrace with tears rolling down their cheeks. The heartwarming and emotional reunion of the two lovebirds was captured and shared by their daughter Loriee Barnes.
