Doris Crippen, 73, said she contracted what she believed to be the flu in May. Due to her weakness, she ended up falling and breaking her arm, sending him to the emergency room and eventually to the past.
She turned out to have coronavirus and had to spend almost 30 days in hospital to recover, Crippen said. After her release, Crippen went to Fremont Methodist Health’s Dunklau Gardens to have her arm rehabilitated.
It was there that she met a wonderful surprise.
Bev Boro, 53, has been a caregiver at Dunklau Gardens in Fremont for 22 years and when she came across Crippen’s name on a patient board she immediately recognized him.

The two women have the same father but different mothers, and they haven’t looked like each other for 53 years, when Boro was a baby. Crippen lived with his mother, but Boro and four of their 14 siblings were separated by the state and put up for adoption when they were 6 months old.
