A reunion between family members can be very emotional and touching, especially when they have been apart for so many years. Here is a story of a reunion between an elderly man and his sister after being apart for 5 years.
95-year-old Mary Pine surprised his younger brother, 94-year-old Bob Taylor, at his home in Atlanta, Georgia, five years ago. Time had passed, and much had transpired, and they hadn’t seen each other in that time. Mary has relocated to an Ambler, Pennsylvania nursing home. When the pandemic hit in 2020 and the globe went into lockdown, the brothers had to make do with daily phone calls instead of seeing one other.
Fate changed all that when younger brother Bob and his two adult grandchildren went all the way to her home, doing a 13-hour drive to surprise Mary on her birthday on the 4th of July, 2021. Two granddaughters, Morgan Taylor and Kenzie Hardin took videos of the heartwarming moment between the siblings. As soon as Mary walked into the visitor’s area, her mouth fell open with surprise when she saw her beloved younger brother and was overwhelmed with happiness as she suddenly hugged him tightly.
“It definitely pulled some heartstrings,” Morgan said. “I’m so happy he got the opportunity to see her again and her reaction was priceless. I know they were both overwhelmed with joy and love, and that’s all I could ask for as a granddaughter.”
