A man surprised his hospitalized wife on their 57th wedding anniversary by showing up in a tuxedo with flowers and chocolate.

Jim Russell and his wife Elinor say they normally keep their anniversary low-key. But this year, their family wanted to come up with a way for Jim to make the day special for Elinor, who has been in the hospital for a month.

Photos posted by their granddaughter show Jim arriving in a tuxedo with a beautiful bouquet of flowers for his wife. Their granddaughters did Elinor’s makeup.
