A World War II veteran in England is going viral after his 17-year-old caretaker gave him a special gift that moved him to tears.

Kia Tobin noticed that Ken Benbow, 94, would sleep with a photograph of his late wife. The two were married for 71 years.

So she decided to give him a pillow with the photograph on it.

“Safe to say, we all shed a tear today,” reads the caption on the Facebook video posted Saturday by the Thistleton Lodge retirement home in Preston.

He told the BBC: “I felt like I’d got my wife back.”
