A 92-year-old man was left completely speechless on his doorstep when his sisters decided to head cross-country to pay him a surprise visit for the first time in 30 years. Joseph Bell did not initially recognize his sisters Carol Miller, 89, and Blanch Stockert, 90, who he had not seen in person since 1990. Back then, Joseph had moved from his home in Illinois to Mississippi, and over the decades that followed, his sisters could not save up enough money to go and visit him. In 1998, Carol's husband also passed away, leaving her with little retirement money to live on and decreasing the chances of seeing her brother even more. But this year, with the siblings getting older, Carol mentioned to her daughter, Rikki Hannig, 48, from Pekin, Illinois, that she would like to see her brother once more. And so, back in June, Rikki and her husband, Steve Hannig, 50, decided to do their best to make that happen. When they arrived at Joseph's door, the two sisters plotted to casually call their brother, asking him to come to the front door. As Joseph stepped outside, he immediately saw Carol and Blanch standing on his doorstep – a moment that caused him to double-take in realization of who it was. Then, after the 92-year-old let out a shocked expletive, the three siblings hugged for the first time in three decades.
