Good News: A Teary Surprise For 94 Year Old Ken

Each day there is plenty of good news pouring through the cracks of the dark stream of news simultaneously flowing.

Just like this.

Thistleton Lodge in the United Kingdom uploaded this post to their Facebook page on April 18 2020 and it has gone viral (for all of the right reasons).

In the post the retirement home say, ‘We know our residents are missing their loved ones at this time but let’s not forget those who sadly aren’t here with us anymore.’

Ken would take a photo of his late wife to bed with him each night. When one if his caregivers found out, they decided to surprise him.

‘Today, one of our lovely staff Kia Mariah Tobin gave Ken a pillow with his beloved wife on who we also cared for. Safe to say we all shed a tear with Ken today,’ the post says.

Ken’s reaction to the surprise is so beautiful and shows just how much we all mean to one another in this world.

Staying up to date with the good news of the world is equally, if not more, important right now.

Have a happy, good day.

  1. Kiara, thank you for choosing to follow my blog, Bobbing Around. I hope my words will be of service to you for a long time. And I am happy to email you a free review copy of one of my books.


  2. I actually saw this on “Some Good News” with John Krasinski the other day (if you don’t know it, I feel like you’d like it!) and it was so sweet. Great to see more people talking about good things happening right now! Loved it.

    Also, thanks for the follow! I’ve seen a few of your posts and I think you’re a really good writer. Keep it up!

  3. Thanks so much for sharing this, Kiara. I really love it and will share it with a friend who farwelled a friend this week. I’m not sure that he would get a pillow with his friend on it. I could see myself getting my dog on a cushion or my grandparents. It’s such a lovely idea. Something to think about…
    Best wishes,
