A North Carolina man shared his story on Facebook after receiving an unexpected note from an older gentleman in a packed restaurant. Although the old man couldn’t speak, he sure knew how to get someone’s attention
The Facebook post has since gone viral, being shared thousands of times on social media. Read it below.

“Today I went to Lane’s Ferry Grill to eat lunch. Great staff and food. I needed a real bacon cheeseburger. Place was packed. Now the rest of the story…

As I sat alone with one seat open an elderly gentleman caught my attention and pointed to the chair and motioned if he could sit down. I replied sure. He was filling out his order sheet and one of the staff came to say to me that the gentleman communicated by passing notes because he couldn’t hear or speak well. They asked if he could sit there. I responded we had already worked that out.

As we sat and passed notes, we filled up both sides of his paper, I only wondered the things he had seen. Well he met JFK, in the ’40s he went to Arizona and it was 120 degrees. Yes, we wrote about the weather. What a great lunch!

I tell this story that may seem insignificant, only to share just how significant it was. As I sat there I wondered if and hoped that I was making a better day for this 93 year young gentleman.

    Thank God, their are still some Good Samaritans in the World some People don't take the time to Care. It does not hurt to Compassion on those that can't help themselves. If you just give them a cool drink, you have done something. When you have done something for others, whether big or small, You have done it to Jesus. Thank God. Will you be the One, Like this Gentlemen, who will be that Good Samaritan. God Bless You Sir. I'm sure that will ever be in the Gentlemen's mind.

    Wow !!!! What a lovely story. What a kind and wonderful person to appreciate another human being. We could learn so much from our elders- all that's needed is kindness , time and respect for the elderly .

    Yes it is and that should be the way it is we have gotten so self-centered and uncaring and cold in this country and that's not how it used to be the tech is taking over but in the wrong way and we need to remember that we are human beings and we need each other and we should respect each other and love each other the way We Were Meant to help each other take care of each other watch out for each other and speak to each other truthfully but remember to think of others as well it's really not that hard it's the way I grew up I would love to see that come back respect each other thank you for sharing this beautiful story

    That story made me miss my grandpa! I could never get enough of his stories. He fought in WW11 and even though he rarely talked about it in his younger days the older he got the more he talked about it. He passed away a couple weeks before Christmas 2016. It was hard to lose him but I’m looking forward to the day we meet again.
