Transcript for Nursing home resident watches daughter’s wedding from window
Finally, the mother of the bride. It was a daughter's wish, Robyn getting ready to marry her love, Tim, but her mother is in a nursing home. They're trying to keep her safe from the virus. So, they decided to bring the wedding to her. 89-year-old Dorothy Roberts inside, her daughter outside that window, smiling in her wedding dress. The wedding was held instead at the Isabella center for nursing and rehabilitation in Washington heights, New York. And they are celebrating Robyn's wedding together. Robyn and her then-fiance Tim Williams asked the center if they could hold their wedding outside in the courtyard so mom could witness it. She was right there for the vows, the rings, the kiss. And she's right here tonight. Hi, David. Dorothy telling us, she was so honored to be included. I'm so happy to be here, to attend my daughter's wedding. Hi, David. Hi, David. And the newlyweds, Robyn and Tim telling us, they could not have done this without Dorothy. To see my mom in the window, it was more than we could have ever, ever possibly asked for. A fraud? Sure sounds like it.
