    “He was sad that we wouldn’t be able to see each other, but told me he’d be there for me the whole time,” Camila said.

    The two spent the next several days sitting outside her home in Texas every day for an hour or two while she quarantined in her room, bringing puzzles, food and plenty of conversation to keep her occupied.

    “We would eat dinner together when he would sit outside some nights and most of the time we would just talk.

    “He would tell me about his day and one night we looked up questions to ask your partner and we each answered about 100 questions.”
