A photo of three coffee shop employees praying with a grieving customer has gone viral on Facebook.
Barbara Danner was in line at the drive-thru of Dutch Bros. in Vancouver on March 18 when she captured the emotional moment on camera, KGW reported.
Danner posted the photo on Facebook and explained what was happening. She wrote:
Snapped this picture while waiting in line at the Dutch Bros on 138th Avenue today. Turns out the young lady in line ahead of us lost her 37-year-old husband last night. When the DB guys & gals noticed she was falling apart, they stopped everything and prayed with her for several minutes, invited her to come back for prayer and support, as well as anything else that she might need. Prayers for the young family, and you know where to stop for coffee!
Pierce Dunn, one of the employees seen in the photo, said they were trying to show empathy toward the grieving woman.
"She was showing raw emotion toward us so we gave it right back to her," Dunn told KGW.
"She just shook all of our hands and wiped her face and said, 'Thank you,'" added Evan Freeman, another employee. "And I think it was a genuine thank you that someone took the time and moment to say, 'I'm sorry.'"
The post quickly went viral and has already been shared more than 86,000 times. Several social media users left comments where they recalled their own positive experiences with the coffee shop chain.
