A World War II veteran has recovered from coronavirus after a hospital stay and he made it to see his granddaughter tie the knot. Vincent Simeone of Woburn, Massachusetts healed just in time to surprise Amy Zimmerman and Sal Scudieri at their wedding on May 24th, which would have been his late wife Millie’s 100th birthday.
The 99-year-old grandfather maintained a safe distance at the nuptials and wore his face mask and had a good time being around his family again. They kept the wedding small, with just 10 people witnessing the ceremony inside the church and family gathered outside for a short reception.
“It was a huge surprise and it was great to see him standing and waving, smiling,” the bride says. “You could tell by his eyes that he was very excited and happy.”
