A 79-year-old California man stretched out in the snow and made his first-ever snow angel with the help of staff at an assisted-living facility in Oklahoma.

BROKEN ARROW, Okla. -- It took nearly 80 years, but a California man finally got the opportunity to fulfill a snow dream.

Caretakers at an assisted-living facility helped 79-year-old Edward Trejo make his first-ever snow angel.

Trejo, who now lives in Oklahoma, says he had never seen snow like the kind that recently fell during a severe winter storm in the area.

So after the storm passed, caretakers helped Trejo walk over to a blanket of fresh fallen snow.

Franciscan Villa, the retirement and assisted-living facility where Trejo lives, shared video on Facebook saying, "Today his wish came true!"

The video shows staff cheering him on as he made a snow angel on Feb. 19.

"How does it feel? Is it cold?" a person asked. "It feels good," Trejo responded.
