“No one prepares you for the feeling of growing up and seeing the people you love grow older too. I’m going to miss them,” she captioned the touching video.
Nneoma considered her grandparents to be more than just life partners.
They’ve been together for 62 years
They had been together for 62 years, according to her, and were each other’s best friends.
They watched her develop into a fine young woman and she took pleasure in the fact that they are still alive.
For years, she claimed that the couple shuttled back and forth between Nigeria and the US, taking care of her and her siblings while her parents went to work.
As each member of the family bid the couple farewell at the airport, they were all overcome with emotion.
Netizens also shared in the emotional moment as they marveled at the old couple’s devotion to each other.
