Grandmother Surprised With Memory Pillow Of Late WWII Vet Husband

A beloved grandmother could not hold back her happy tears when she was surprised with a pillow of her late husband of 70 years. Estella Cobert, 88, lost her husband Charles Robert, 90, a World War II veteran, in December of 2019, and every night since she had fallen asleep next to a photo of him. Wanting to come up with a way to surprise her grandmother on her upcoming birthday, Ashley Martinez, 30, from Smithfield, Pennsylvania, decided to take the photo Estella cherished so much and have it turned into a pillow. On July 15, Ashley presented Estella with the bag that contained the sweet gift. As her grandmother pulled out the pillow and looked at the face staring back at her, she immediately began to well up, hugging the pillow closely. Since then, Estella has slept with the pillow every night, holding it as she falls asleep.
