BOSTON (AP) — A man got permission to serenade his girlfriend who lives in a Boston assisted living facility.
Ed Bohld has visited his girlfriend, Mary Lou, at Compass on the Bay assisted living facility every day for nearly five years, WCVB-TV reported.
But new restrictions have been put into place in response to the coronavirus, prompting Massachusetts officials to limit or ban visitors at hospitals and nursing home visitors, including Lou’s facility.
Bohld said his first request to sing to Lou through a window was denied.
Compass on the Bay said in a statement Bohld insisted the window be open and they denied his request to abide by state restrictions.
But on Thursday morning, Bohld was allowed to sing “You Are My Sunshine” to Lou through a partially opened window in the rain.
