He Takes His Wife's Picture With Him Everywhere, So He Never Has To Eat Alone
October 24, 2014
This heartwarming photo has recently surfaced online of an older man eating all by himself at In-N-Out Burger with a picture standing up on the table.
The picture is of him and his wife, who passed away years ago.
However, this is not the first time he has been spotted doing this.
According to this post:
"I saw this elderly gentleman dining by himself, with an old picture of a lady in front of him. I thought maybe I could brighten his day by talking to him.
As I had assumed, she was his wife. But I didn’t expect such an interesting story. They met when they were both 17. They dated briefly, then lost contact when he went to war and her family moved. But he said he thought about her the entire war. After his return, he decided to look for her. He searched for her for 10 years and never dated anyone. People told him he was crazy, to which he replied “I am. Crazy in love”. On a trip to California, he went to a barber shop. He told the barber how he had been searching for a girl for ten years. The barber went to his phone and called his daughter in. It was her! She had also been searching for him and never dated either.
He proposed immediately and they were married for 55 years before her death 5 years ago. He still celebrates her birthday and their anniversary. He takes her picture with him everywhere and kisses her goodnight.
Some inspiring things he said:
'I was a very rich man. Not with money, but with love'
'I never had a single argument with my wife, but we had lots of debates'
'People are like candles. At any moment a breeze can blow it out, so enjoy the light while you have it.'
'Tell your wife that you love her everyday. And be sure to ask her, have I told you that I love you lately?'"
