The Simple Thing This Elderly Man Did For His Wife On A Hot Day Is A Beautiful Display Of Selfless Love

“What a joy to see something like that, hope young people take notice!”

True love can be seen in the most sincere moments. One example of a loving exchange between an elderly couple will surely melt your heart.

Brent Kelley made an ice cream stop with his three children on a sweltering hot day in Franklin, Tennessee when he witnessed unconditional love in its purest form.  

"When I got my ice cream … I realized that this elderly man beside me was sitting outside his car door, spoon feeding his wife ice cream who also looked in her late eighties," the 34-year-old pastor captioned a photo he captured of the couple.


"He draped a towel over her and slowly fed his bride in the 98 degree temperature," he added. "It was a beautiful display of love."

The photo instantly went viral on Facebook with more than 800,000 liking it and nearly 330,000 sharing what Kelley later described in an interview as the "perfect representation of what love is."

"It was unselfish," he said in the interview. "It was 98 degrees and he's sitting next to the pavement, which is also warm, and he's feeding his wife ice cream because she's disabled."

It's a lesson for us all about selflessly supporting the ones you love in their times of need.
