Twenty of Joan Abernathy’s family members piled into their cars and drove an hour to see her on her 90th birthday on Monday.

“Every year, we have a big party for her birthday, so this was totally different this year not being able to see her,” said Joan’s granddaughter Rachel Hancock. “We still made the hour trip, knowing that we were going to stand outside the window and wave to her.”
