The commemorative plaques are often dedicated to a loved one who is no longer with us, but a woman in TikTok he found one celebrating a happy occasion on a park bench in New York, USA. This is the story of the romantic event that surprised everyone on social networks.
In your account TikTok (@_tihaaaaaa), Tihana shared a video viral of what she calls a “happy bank” for its commemorative plaque dedicated to a couple whose history of love began to be written in that place. “In this bench the December 31, 2011, at 5:17 pm, David White and Alison Wholey decided to live the rest of their lives together “, it reads on the sheet.
Since the clip was posted last Nov. 16, accumulating more than 665,000 views to date, David White himself was encouraged to comment and give Tihana’s followers an update on his romance with Alison Wholey: they are still together (and with children) a decade later since that day he immortalized that bench of Cobble Hill Park in Brooklyn.

A perennial tribute for those who have already left
Although the viral video of David and Alison’s love message was the one that attracted the attention of Internet users (especially after the story was shared by the British newspaper Mirror), Tihana has posted several clips on TikTok of the commemorative plaques of other park benches in New York, being congratulated for giving space to these emotional posthumous tributes.
