Man Reunites with Sister, 98, on His 100th B-Day for the First Time since the Pandemic Happened

Six days ago a 100-year-old man met with his 98-year-old sister for the first time since the pandemic started. Emily Knight posted the video of her great-grandfather’s reunion with his sister.

Norman, 100, was surprised to see his sister Jean, 98, for the first time since the pandemic started. It was an incredible surprise for him to be reunited with his family on his centennial birthday.

As Jean stepped out of the car and walked towards her brother, in astonishment he exclaimed that's his sister. His great-granddaughter, Emily Knight giggled out of joy and confirmed that is his sister, while she recorded the video.

When Emily confirmed it’s his sister, her great-grandfather fist-pumped the air in excitement while his sister walked over. Norman and Jean were choked with emotions as they met and hugged each other.

People in the background cheered and clapped at the reunion of the siblings. “Somewhere over the Rainbow” from “The Wizard of Oz” sung by Judy Garland, played over the video on TikTok. One of the comments in the TikTok video said:

“Wait! 100 and 98? Yeah, I’ll have whatever they’ve been having. They look fantastic. Such a sweet reunion!”

There are over 21k comments on the video. Viewers had expressed their joy and emotions in the comments. Some commented that they cried as they watched the video. Many admired the strong bond of the siblings.

In a similar story, a World War II vet reunited with his family on his centennial birthday. Andy Tomsho, a navy veteran, celebrated the milestone with his daughter and granddaughter. He served in the military as an electrician on board the USS Nevada.

Though Jerry was diagnosed with Alzheimer's three years ago, he hadn’t forgotten his wife of 58 years.

Representatives from American Legion Auxiliary Unit 3.21 in Huntsville also arrived to acknowledge Tomsho for his military service. Joseph Reale from American Legion explained that they wouldn’t be living a life with all the amenities if it weren’t for his sacrifices.

Just like the great-grandpa and the veteran, another couple married for 58 years reunited almost after a year since the pandemic began. Harriet and Jerry Shenkman, spent time together in person, a week before Valentine’s Day.
