Couple Married For 72 Years Reunite After Over A Year Apart During COVID

One couple that has been married for 72 years was finally able to reunite after spending a year apart due to COVID-19.

Francis and Roberta Doiron have a love that lasts. And after 72 years together, the pair knows how important commitment is to a marriage.

But due to COVID-19, Francis was unable to visit his wife in her nursing home, and the two have been physically apart for over a year.

“I went there every day,” Francis says while being interviewed at his house. “I saw her from 6:30 in the morning to 6:30 at night. 7 days a week.”

And the couple’s separation has been increasingly hard for them. “She’s losing her memory more often, because I’m not there,” says Francis about Roberta.

But they have been able to use FaceTime over the last year to communicate, but it is still not the same as being in the same room as your sweetheart.

“Hey Roberta!” Francis says enthusiastically as he uses FaceTime to greet his wife every morning. “Remember, I love you very much.”

Thankfully, after a year apart, the couple is finally able to reunite in person! With both of them being fully vaccinated, the two were able to have such a sweet and emotional reunion at Roberta’s nursing home. And Francis can now visit her regularly.

“I’m getting to hoping that once I get to see her more often, I can bring her memory back,” he says.

And after sharing their first hug in a while and holding hands next to each other, Francis is hopeful about the future and things to come.

“Things aren’t that bad,” he says. “There is a light at the end of the tunnel.”

What a beautiful story of love and commitment. May God bless this precious couple as they continue to love and support each other, no matter what life throws at them.
