An Alabama man and his friends shared a heartwarming meal to an old lady after seeing her sitting by herself at a restaurant Thursday night.
On April 18, Jamario Howard says he and a friend went out to eat and noticed to see the old lady sitting alone.
“My exact thoughts was ‘dang, I’d hate to have to eat alone.’ So after thinking about it a minute I walked over to her and asked if I could sit with her,” Jamario wrote in a Facebook post.
She said yes, and the two began talking. After a while, Eleanor told Jamario she had lost her husband, and that Friday would have been their 60th wedding anniversary. That’s when he asked her to join him and his friends, which he says she was excited to do.
He wrote: “This woman changed my outlook on life and how I look at other people. Everyone has a story so do not judge,”
They shared a meal together and shared stories. Complete strangers, getting results for each other.
Jamario stressed that this interaction just goes to show, you never know what people are dealing with, when they may be in need, or where you can find a friend.
“The point in this is always be kind and be nice to people. You never know what they are going through.”
Here is what he posted on Facebook:

So tonight JaMychol Baker Tae Knight and myself went out to eat at this place called Brads in Oxford, and after us sitting there a while waiting on our food i noticed an elderly woman sitting alone. My exact thoughts was “dang I’d hate to have to eat alone”. So after thinking about it 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. I instantly gave my condolences and asked her to come eat with us, which she was excited to do. 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!!
