If there’s one good thing about the novel coronavirus pandemic, it’s the reminder that we’re all in this together. We’ve heard stories from around the world about how people are coping and adapting to these new challenges, but few have touched our hearts like this story from a tiny village in Italy.
In a video, we see 81-year-old Stefano Bozzini sitting outside Castel San Giovanni hospital to serenade Carla Sacchi, his dying wife. After she was admitted for a sickness unrelated to COVID-19, Stefano was told he couldn’t visit her. That’s when the husband of 47 years decided to hang out by her window and play a few of her favorite songs on his accordion.
“I did it for Carla — to show her how much I love her and to thank her for all she has given me,” Stefano said. “My heart told me to go. After she heard the music she looked out of the window, so at least I got to see her.”
Sadly, Carla has since passed away from her illness. While Stefano is grieving her absence, we’re sure he takes comfort in knowing he demonstrated his affection so clearly in her final days. Watch his moving serenade in the video below, and don’t forget to share this story to spread this example of true love.
