In an adorable image spreading all over the internet, an elderly man from Nashville, Tennessee was filmed feeding his long-time wife ice cream on an extremely hot day. As the temperatures peaked at 98 degrees, a photo was snapped showing an old man sitting in his car feeding his wife a spoonful of ice cream. It is a heartwarming instant that shows how much he loves his woman. And when 34-year-old Pastor Brent Kelley saw what was happening, he simply had to take a picture and highlight this positive interaction on his social media page.
Because it was such a hot day, Kelley decided to take his children out for ice cream at their local Nashville Sonic on Monday. And while he was there, he saw the anonymous elderly man feeding his wife the cold treat on the hot day.
Kelley is the pastor at Ignite Ministries and could not believe this couple, who had been married for years, still shared a childish and young love like this.
He shared the important photo and added the following caption along with it:
“So today, I took the kids to the pool and we stopped for ice cream on the way home,” Kelley wrote. “When I got my ice cream and pulled out, I realized that this elderly man beside me was sitting out side his car door, spoon feeding his wife ice cream who also looked in her late eighties. He draped a towel over her and slowly fed his bride in the 98 degree temperature. It was a beautiful display of love.”
Pastor Kelley was impressed with the beautiful moment of pure love. The image has been shared hundreds of thousands of times and garnered tens of thousands of comments.
Viewers from around the country shared their remarks. One wrote, “That is love, and life and what it is all about.”
Another added, “This is the kind of story that makes me believed that true love really exist.”
Others shared their views on Mail Online adding to the conversation about the lovable old couple.
“Hard to find a love like that nowadays. Beautiful.”
“Yes. Love is always amazing (even in little doses).”
“That’s true love.. ‘do you think something like that happens everyday!?’” asked one shocked viewer.
In response Ivan Makarov wrote, “My wife helps me get around; I am handicapped. She will climb stairs to bring me things, and massages my legs to help relieve the pain. We have been married 48 years. She married a louse [not really]; I married an angel. I would do the same all over again – except take better care of my knees and ankles!”
One person thought this photo demonstrated the couple’s wedding vows in action.
“The power of a kept promise, for better, for worse; for richer, for poorer; in sickness and in health; until death us do part; so help me God.”
One naysayer found negativity in the special moment: “Don’t people have any right to privacy anymore. Why do people think they have a right to photograph someone going about their daily lives and post it to social media?”
What do you think about this elderly couple’s love?
