This centenarian had the sweetest reaction to a chivalrous Mountie stepping forward to grant her birthday wish.
As a means of celebrating Elsie Shepherd’s 100th birthday earlier this week, her nursing home in Regina hosted a party at the facility.
In addition to inviting her family members, Shepherd mentioned how she hoped there would be police officers at the celebration – so the nursing home staffers called the RCMP Depot Division and asked if any Mounties could go to the party.
Shepherd was overjoyed when Cpl. Daryl Chernoff and three other police officers showed up for the birthday celebration.
As the party progressed, Chernoff heard Shepherd mention several times that she wished she could dance – and he was more than happy to grant her wish.
Chernoff then asked Shepherd and her family for permission to dance. Once they had all accepted, he took her hand and led her onto the floor.
“She was ear-to-ear smiles,” Chernoff told CTV News. “I was able to take her out to the dance floor and we had a conversation there and you could see the smile on her face, she just couldn’t stop.”
Since the RCMP uploaded the video to their Facebook page, it has been viewed thousands of times – and it’s easy to see why.
