Al and Melba Louks will celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary this month, but have not been able to touch each other since March.

Melba is in a rehab facility in Searcy after suffering a stroke last year and the COVID-19 restrictions have kept the couple from being able to physically interact.

Al has been meeting Melba at a glass door or window outside of the facility every day since the pandemic began. In an interview, he told Channel 7 that he will continue to go to her window and see her as long as she is in the facility or until restrictions are lifted.
