99-year-old veteran Vincent Simeone of Massachusetts was diagnosed with COVID-19 on April 16. He was hospitalized from April 20 to May 7.

Thankfully Simeone healed just in time to celebrate his granddaughter Amy Zimmerman Scudieri's wedding day on May 24. The same day would have been his late wife Millie's 100th birthday.

Scudieri told Good Morning America,

"It was a huge surprise and it was great to see him standing and waving, smiling. You could tell by his eyes that he was very excited and happy."

When it came time for Scudieri to marry, 10 people witnessed the ceremony inside a church and family members gathered in the parking lot for a short reception.
