New York Times reported that the duo had not seen each other in a long time. However, when they finally reunited, they spent several days in each other’s company before having to part ways. Shivley filmed a conversation between the two as a memory and shared it on TikTok. Expectedly, it went viral with over 13 million views and counting.

Shivley also shared the video on Instagram with the caption, “94 and 90 year old sisters. They have loved each other for so long! They live across the country and I was asked to bring them together for a visit one last time.”

The siblings are unlikely to see each other in person again due to their age and the difficulties of travel.

In the video, Shirley says, “Don’t say goodbye!” To this, Carolan replied, “I’m not going to! There’s no way I’m going to say goodbye to you.”
