94-year-old woman travels across US to see 90-year-old sister one last time

A New England granddaughter took her 94-year-old grandmother across the country to see her 90-year-old sister for a final time. A video captured during their last night together is going viral on TikTok.

“If we don’t see each other on this Earth, we’ll see you in heaven,” the younger sister said in the video shared by Stephanie Atkinson Shively.

“You betcha, you betcha,” the 94-year-old woman referred to as “Gigi” replied.

Shively told a local TV news station the reunion was three years in the making, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “Gigi,” whose real name is Barbara Carolan, had not been able to see her little sister named Shirley since 2020 but was determined to make one final trip from Seabrook, New Hampshire to Laughlin, Nevada.

“Don’t say goodbye!” Shirley said.

“I’m not going to! There’s no way I’m going to say goodbye to you,” Carolan replied.
