‘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.’
