By Tess Farrand, Associate Content Editor
Bob Shellard couldn’t go into his wife, Nancy’s, nursing home on their 67th anniversary so he got creative…
Shellard stood outside Nancy’s bedroom window with a colorful sign that read, “I’ve loved you 67 years and still do. Happy Anniversary.”
Due to coronavirus precaution, Bob Shellard isn’t allowed to visit his wife in her Connecticut nursing home. So he stood outside her window and held up a sign that said “I’ve loved you 67 years and still do. Happy Anniversary.” https://t.co/cIwZxwmZeN pic.twitter.com/nW86SYm4HU

Attached to the sign were both balloons and a giant red heart.
According to Yahoo! News:
Last Saturday marked the first time that the Shellards weren’t able to celebrate their March 14 anniversary in person. Earlier this month, Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont signed an order that let the Department of Public Health restrict visitation at nursing home facilities.
“It makes me feel bad because I want her down with me and I know she can’t be,” Shellard told NBC affiliate WNBC in New York.
Congratulations to the longtime couple!
