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:

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.
His daughter, Elaine Postawa, traveled to north Charlotte from Newport, North Carolina, to be present and celebrate her father’s 100th birthday. She said:
“It’s a very big gift to be able to celebrate this birthday with him.”
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.
