A Florida couple who have married for 60 years were forced to spend months apart due to the coronavirus pandemic — and a camera was rolling when they finally reunited for a hug after 215 days.

Joseph and Eve Loreth, both 80, live at the Rosecastle at Delaney Creek assisted living facility, but were separated for seven months because Joseph has had to spend time in the hospital.

Recently, though, the facility’s ‘resident love birds’ got to see each other again, and tears were shed as they embraced at the emotional meeting.

Joseph had surgery earlier this year, and was in rehab for months, away from his wife.

Because of COVID-19 restrictions, the pair only got to see each other through windows and talk on the phone. 

So when Joseph finally came home, he and Eve were overcome with emotion to see each other again.

In video shared by Rosecastle’s Facebook page, an employee is seen pushing Joseph in a wheelchair through a building.

When he is wheeled up to Eve, her jaw drops and she exclaims ‘oh my God’ several times before getting up to hug him.  

'I didn¿t think I would ever get over here. I missed you so much,' he says

'I missed you,' she answers

‘I didn’t think I would ever get over here. I missed you so much,’ he says

Joe, meanwhile, starts to tear up. She puts her arms around him, and the two stand for a few moments to cry together.  

‘I didn’t think I would ever get over here. I missed you so much,’ he says. 

‘I missed you,’ she answers.

‘Oh you’re alright. I love you so much,’ he says. ‘For sixty years. I’ve done something right.’

Joseph told Fox 13 that they met when they were just 16.
