(KTVI)- A photo captured by @Maaadina of an older widower having a meal at In-N-Out Burger in California with a photo of his late life has gone viral.
The photograph alone will leave some speechless, as it embodies the meaning of true love. But this wasn’t the man’s first visit to the restaurant to dine with his wife.
One week prior, someone else posted a photo of the same gentleman sitting at the same table. The picture was of the same woman.
“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.”
That person also shared some inspiring quotes from him.
“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?”
