    Tech-Savvy Grandparents Skype into Granddaughter’s Wedding

    Wedding bells rang for Bob and Harriet Sackett 70 years ago, on November 18, 1943. In honor of her beloved grandparents, the Sacketts’ granddaughter, Heather, and her fiancé, Lee, chose the same date for their 1940's themed California wedding. Due to recent life challenges, Bob and Harriet, who reside at Lake Seminole Square, a Brookdale Senior Living community in Seminole, Florida, were not able to travel to California. However, thanks to ConnectedLiving, a program developed to get seniors online, they participated in the wedding via Skype! The young bride and groom sent a duplicate bouquet and boutonniere to the couple, which were a perfect match to Bob and Harriet’s violet wedding apparel. With their son and daughter-in-law, Bob and Sue, at their side, the Sacketts renewed their love of family in this unique 21st century style.
