Elderly Man Takes Late Wife’s Ashes on Dinner Date, Breaks Hearts

Valentine’s Day is one of the most special moments in a couple’s life in a year. Of course, their wedding day is certainly the most special day of their lives but each year, wedding anniversaries and Valentine’s Day bring back wonderful memories of their good times together.

As a way of expressing love, they give gifts to one another; although it is often the man who goes the extra mile to make his lady feel special on Valentine’s Day. More often than not, couples go out on a dinner date to celebrate the occasion.

This year’s Valentine’s Day was a hard one for a widower but he still went out on a dinner date with his wife. This time around, though, she wasn’t with him in person but he was carrying her ashes in a bottle which he placed on the table.

This photo would break so many hearts across the world after his story was shared by Chasidy Gwaltney who happened to see him while dining at a restaurant near Corpus Christi, Texas.

“This picture speaks loudly and it may hurt your heart as it has mine. This man looks like he is spending Valentine’s Day alone at first glance but that is actually his wife in that very beautiful bottle sitting on the table.

Apparently his love for her was and still is very strong as he takes her ashes out for a Valentine’s lunch date together. He even bought her a glass of wine…”

The poignant moment would go viral, with many people tagging their special someone and promising to spend more time with them from now on as well as showing them appreciation and love.

“Please love your Sweetheart while you have the opportunity, you never know what tomorrow will bring or take away!”

How true!
