One Good Thing: Couple reminisces about prom during nursing home visit; Classmates wish first grader happy birthday outside home


MYSTIC, Conn. (WTNH)– During this time of uncertainty over the coronavirus, News 8 understands that people are stressed, and need some positives to focus on.

In this installment of “One Good Thing,” we bring you a heartwarming visit at the Mystic Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center.

In the video, a woman comes to see her husband, Bob, at that nursing home, but due to the coronavirus pandemic changing visitation rules, she speaks to him on the phone while looking at him through the window.

However, this lovely couple, who has been married for 74 years, makes the best of this different kind of visit by reminiscing about their prom (yes, they went together!) and proving that their love is staying strong despite this challenging moment.

This video, which is posted on the Mystic Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center’s Facebook page, has already received 76K views and 1K shares.

In today’s bonus good thing, students at Jennings School in Fairfield found a way to wish Joseph Travis a happy seventh birthday on March 20 to make sure he had a special day while social distancing.

It’s something their first-grade classes have decided to do for every child who celebrates a birthday during the time they are out of school.
