Calvin Godette said he was on his way to Subway for lunch after his assignments for the morning.

"I was going to Subway, and then God said go to Burger King," Godette told NBC12.

While in the Burger King drive-thru line, he noticed the woman in the vehicle behind him looked "very upset". At that moment, Godette told staff members at the drive-thru window he would pay for the woman's meal.

That small gesture would go a very long way.

Little did Godette know, the woman in the car, Barbara Walters, was heading to her husband's funeral.

"It just touched my heart so that someone would take the time to do something like that for me," said Walters.

"Some people just think, oh, it's such a small gesture. It made me feel like there was a light at the end of the tunnel."
