25 years later, woman reunites with childhood nanny inside Florida Publix


Crystal DePoo hadn’t seen her childhood nanny, Rufina, in 25 years. So when she learned Rufina was working at a Key West Publix, she decided to make a surprise visit.

Crystal was on vacation with her family when the reunion happened.

“You know, I still cry thinking about it,” Crystal said.

In the emotional video captured by Crystal’s husband, Rufina takes a few seconds to recognize Crystal before breaking into tears and giving her a hug. The video currently has more than a million likes on TikTok.

Rufina worked as a nanny for Crystal’s family in the Dominican Republic. Crystal described Rufina as a “second mom”.

“I’m so happy,” Rufina said after the Key West reunion.

The two plan to continue staying in touch after their time apart.
