Photos of the adorable couple were shared online by their granddaughter, Yael Shapira Avraham on social media. The image shows Ezra carefully applying dye with a brush to his wife’s roots as she sits in a wheelchair, with an old towel draped over her shoulders and secured at the front with a clothespin.

“In every situation, my grandfather is worried that my grandmother will feel well-groomed you don’t see things like this every day,” a translation of Avraham’s Hebrew comment reads. “The picture reflects everything.”

What an inspiration of husband-wife love these two are to the whole world, may they continue to take care of each other as lovingly and tenderly all the days of their life.
