Hundreds of students in Comox, B.C. walked to an elderly woman’s home on Thursday to show their appreciation and give her one more wave goodbye.

Tinney Davidson, 88, has been waving to students on their way to Highland Secondary School for the past 12 years.

Davidson and her late husband, Ken, started waving to the teenagers after the couple moved into the house in 2007. Soon the students were waving back.

But soon, Davidson won’t be in her window when students go to school. She’s moving to an assisted living center.

So, more than 400 kids walked to Davidson’s house together to give one more wave goodbye.

The teenagers held signs and clapped and cheered as Davidson walked out onto her porch.

They counted down from three to blow her a group kiss.

“Oh, lovely, thank you,” she said, holding a tissue.

“I was shocked again that’s there’s so many kids that want to say goodbye to me.”
