Hospital staff brings elderly couple together on 71st anniversary

A Nebraska woman shared a touching photo of her parents sharing a meal in the hospital on their anniversary.

Last week, Julia Gottula said her parents were forced to spend their 71st anniversary at CHI Bergan Mercy Hospital, which is in Omaha.

Gottula said some kindhearted hospital workers helped make it a special day for the elderly couple.

"A big thank you to all who had a hand in this and getting all the approvals knowing this was a very special day," Gottula said. "The look on my parents' faces was priceless when they saw the special meal that was prepared just for them."

Gottula said her parents were all smiles over the kind gesture.

"You pulled off something with such short notice since our mother was just admitted that morning," she said. "Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the wonderful thought and actions."

The hospital's Facebook page responded to Gottula's photo and told her they were glad her parents were able to celebrate together.
