Elderly Man Eats Alone With Photo Of His Late Wife Beside Him

An elderly man has captured the hearts of many after a picture of him eatring alone with a photo of his late wife on the table went viral.

The man, who is a pensioner, was spotted dining at an In-N-Out Burger restaurant in California. He revealed that the woman in the picture is his beloved wife, whom he was married to for 55 years and who passed away five years ago.

According to Daily Mail, the man, who has been captured eating at the fast food chain alongside photos of his late wife several times, told intrigued customers that he met his soul mate when they were both 17.

They dated briefly, before losing contact when he went off to war and her family moved away from California, according to a diner who posted an image of the pensioner on Imgur.

While he was serving for his country, the man constantly thought about the woman he loved and on his return to America, decided to look for her.

For the following ten years, he desperately searched for his love, refusing to date anyone else and answering claims that he was crazy with: "I am. Crazy in love."

Finally, he visited a barber shop in California, where he discovered the barber's daughter was, in fact, the woman he had spent so long searching for.

She, too, had spent the past decade searching for him, so he proposed and they wed. They then spent an amazing 55 years together. It is unknown whether they had children.

Since his wife's death in 2009, the pensioner revealed he takes at least one photo of her with him everywhere and even kisses it goodnight. He also still celebrates her birthday and their anniversary.

One diner, Madina Bashizaduah, of San Francisco Bay Area, posted a photo of the man on Twitter, alongside the caption: "Oh my god I just died! He has a picture of his wife with him as he eats!"

The image has been shared more than 7,000 times, prompting other customers to upload interesting quotes that the pensioner had said during their conversations with him.
