On a rainy day in Boston, Massachusetts, Ed Oliver Bohld stood outside the window of his longtime girlfriend's room at her assisted living home. He couldn't visit her because of the pandemic, so instead he sang.
Under an umbrella, with a guitar in hand, Bohld sang, "You are my sunshine" as he beloved Mary Lou watched from inside. When he was done, she beamed and clapped. "I will see you soon," he told her. "All of this will be over eventually. I love you very much. I miss you."
Meanwhile, a family wanted to wish their 95-year-old grandmother a happy birthday, but knew she could not come in contact with them. So instead, they stood out on her lawn, with balloons and handmade signs saying "Happy Birthday."
