With social distancing and isolation emerging as the watchword for fighting the coronavirus pandemic as several countries go under lockdown, a man’s novel way to cheer up his mother who has been lodged at a senior care facility is warming hearts online.
Pictures of the moving gesture by David DeLoach were shared on Twitter by his daughter Jenny along with a caption that read, “My grandma’s living facility is on lockdown. I went to drop off some things for her and found my dad serenading her and her friends on his guitar since he couldn’t come in to visit.”

In the two pictures shared by Jenny, DeLoach can be seen holding a mic while performing in front of the Tennessee-based retirement centre as residents stood at their balconies and windows to watch.
Since being shared online, the post has been flooded with people lauding the son’s thoughtful gesture.
