Jamario Howard, a man from Lincoln, AL, recently had an experience he'll never forget while dining out with friends. In an April 19 Facebook post, he shared what happened when he approached an elderly woman who was eating alone at the same restaurant.
"So tonight, JaMychol Baker, Tae Knight, and I went out to eat at this place called Brads in Oxford, and after sitting there a while waiting on our food I noticed an elderly woman sitting alone," he wrote. "My exact thought was "Dang, I'd hate to have to eat alone.' So after thinking about it for 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."
After learning about the woman's personal history, Jamario didn't see any other option than to invite her to join his group.
"I instantly gave my condolences and asked her to come eat with us, which she was excited to do," he said. "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!!"
