Jayme Closs' grandfather hugged her on Friday, a day after her monthslong kidnapping ordeal ended, like he never wanted to let her go, NBC News reported.
"Oh it was so good to just hug her. How wonderful that she was back and I could hug her again," Robert Naiberg said.
The 13-year-old girl who emerged from the woods in Wisconsin Thursday after escaping from a cabin has spent every day with extended family, according to her aunt. Jayme's parents were killed, allegedly by the man who kidnapped her.
Jayme's family has decorated her room with butterflies, bought her a new bed, pillows and clothing and showed the girl messages sent to her from far and wide.

After months of speculation and secrecy, the 2020 presidential primary season is about to explode.
With several Democrats already in the race, a half dozen more are locking down final travel, staffing and strategy to launch White House bids in the coming weeks. While plans may change, the announcements are expected to come in waves, the first featuring a group of ambitious Senate Democrats including New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, California Sen. Kamala Harris and New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, who face pressure to join the race after Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren's entrance two weeks ago.
The second wave will likely feature political heavyweights like former Vice President Joe Biden, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, New York billionaire Michael Bloomberg and former Texas Congressman Beto O'Rourke.

The U.S. Transportation Security Administration has acknowledged that a passenger bound for Tokyo passed through security in Atlanta with an undetected gun.
News outlets cite an agency statement saying the passenger passed through "a standard screening TSA checkpoint with a firearm" at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport on Jan. 2. The passenger notified Delta Airlines officials after landing at Tokyo's Narita International Airport.
The TSA says standard procedures were not followed during the screening, but further details weren't released. The agency says it "will hold those responsible appropriately accountable."
