Boston Cop’s Unique Talent Helps a Friend Suffering From Covid-19
What Would You Do for a Friend?
The bond between lifelong friends can be strong. Boston Police Lt. Gary Eblan has been friends with Tina Santoro Asmar since they met in first grade according to WMUR.com. When Asmar came down with COVID just a few days before she was scheduled for vaccination, she became very ill and was hospitalized. Gary Eblan would have done anything to help and he has a unique talent that helped a great deal.
The Gift of Song
Tina Santoro Asmar has been hospitalized with COVID at Newton-Wellesley Hospital for nearly three weeks. Her case has been a serious one, but it appears that she is taken a turn for the better and her condition is improving. Boston police Lt. Gary Eblan has been serenading her with songs to lift her spirits. He records the videos of himself singing in his car and sends them to Asmar. The song choice varies from “We are the Champions” to “You Raise Me Up” as performed by Josh Groban according to WMUR.com.
I must admit, Lt. Gary Eblan has the voice of an angel. His songs would lift me up and especially his laughter if I was going through a tough time. They say having a positive attitude is half the battle and Tina Santoro Asmar has that positive attitude. Her message to everyone is “get vaccinated!” according to WMUR.com. She was just days away from getting the shot when she got hit with COVID. I’m glad she has such a good friend in Eblan who was able to make her smile and lift her spirits.
