Truly heartbreaking picture of man crying as he eats his Valentine’s meal alone

A heartbreaking picture has emerged of a man apparently crying at his table as he eats by himself on Valentine’s Day. The man was pictured in a restaurant in Corpus Christi, Texas, by Chasidy Gwaltney.

She wrote that he continues to take his wife’s ashes out for Valentine’s lunch and even buys her a glass of wine. She shared the picture on Facebook saying: ‘You know? We are all guilty of taking our other half for granted from time to time. ‘We may forget to give a goodbye kiss, say I love you or just be so caught up in what we are doing at the moment that we don’t notice the very little things that mean so much to our special someone.


‘I saw something today that has made me remember that we won’t always have each other to hold, talk to, love, play with or even just aggravate every now and then.

‘This picture speaks loudly and it may hurt your heart as it has mine. This man looks like he is spending Valentine’s Day alone at first glance but that is actually his wife in that very beautiful bottle sitting on the table. ‘Apparently his love for her was and still is very strong as he takes her ashes out for a Valentine’s lunch date together. He even bought her a glass of wine…. ‘Please love your Sweetheart while you have the opportunity, you never know what tomorrow will bring or take away!
