This is a tear jerker.
A heartwarming video of an elderly couple which was reunited after eight months apart has left many social media users in tears.
The aged couple were separated due to the Covid-19 Pandemic.
Reports said Mary Davis, 89, last saw Gordon, her husband of 68 years when he was moved to a care home last year.

She had been unable to visit him due to the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions.
In February, Mary was moved into the Baily House Care Home in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire.
Earlier this week, the couple finally reunited after a room was vacant at Baily House and Gordon was transferred there so they could be together.
A staff recorded the special moment when Gordon and Mary were reunited and embraced each other when they met at the home.
The couple even abandoned their walking aids as they hugged, kissed and said “I love you”, as tears rolled down their cheeks.
The video was uploaded on Twitter with the caption, “Manchester, England. After not seeing his wife Mary for several months due to the pandemic — Gordon decided to surprise her by moving into the assisted living home so they could be together. Here’s the reunion,” the user captioned the post.
The video has since received thousands of views and likes and netizens are unable to get over Mary’s reaction when she met Gordon after a long period of time.
“He dropped his cane, she put walker aside. So excited to see each other,” a user said.
