An Unusual Act of Love: Old Man Seen Taking Lunch with a Photograph

An old man is seen many times taking lunch out in restaurants with a photograph as if that was his date. The Photograph was a picture of a woman that the people soon learned was his wife who died 5 years ago. Talk about an undying love!

The man told of their story about how he met the love of his life.

He said they met when they were 17 years old. They dated briefly but have lost contact when the then young man went to a war. He returned to look for the young lady he met and keep looking for 10 years. Because of this the people told him he was crazy. But “crazy in love” was his only reply.

As the man went to California for a trip, he passed by a barber shop and went in. He just told the barber his story and to his surprise, the girl he was looking for is the barber’s daughter. They got married and they have been together for 55 years.

The old man’s love for his wife was so strong that he takes her photograph along with him, and even dine with it. It was an unusual act of love but it sure depicts how love can go far, even death can’t keep the love apart.
