A lone elderly woman in an Alabama restaurant received a welcome surprise after three young men invited her to dine with them instead of having to eat alone, according to CBS News.
What are the details?
The three young men — Jamario Howard, JaMychol Baker, and Tae Knight — were visiting Brad's in Oxford, Alabama, when they spotted the woman eating all alone. Moved by her presence, Howard decided to ask the elderly woman if she wanted to join their party. She happy obliged.
Howard shared the experience on his Facebook page, and the post went viral.
Howard wrote, "So tonight JaMychol Baker Tae Knight and myself went out to eat at this place called Brads in Oxford, and after us sitting there a while waiting on our food i noticed an elderly woman sitting alone. My exact thoughts was 'dang I'd hate to have to eat alone'. So after thinking about it a minute i walked over to her and asked if i could sit with her. She said yes and we talked for a minute and after a while of talking she told me she lost her husband and that tomorrow would have been their 60th anniversary."
"I instantly gave my condolences and asked her to come eat with us, which she was excited to do," Howard added. "The point in this is always be kind and be nice to people. You never know what they are going through. This woman changed my outlook on life and how i look at other people. Everyone has a story so do not judge! And people i can't stress this enough. GO SEE YOUR MOM AND YOUR GRANDPARENTS. They miss you!!"
After the four finished their meal, someone was kind enough to snap their photo, which Howard shared along with the post.
