In a beautiful act of public kindness, restaurant employees sing ‘Amazing Grace’ for a sick diner who doesn’t have that much time left on this earth.
“Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now I am found, was blind, but now I see.
‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear and grace my fears relieved.
How precious did that grace appear the hour I first believed.”
When one elderly gentleman got the news that he was very ill and didn’t have that much time left, he wanted to make sure that he could have at least one last meal at his favorite restaurant with his family. That restaurant was called The Little Big Cup and it is located in Arnaudville, Louisiana.
When the restaurant employees heard the elderly man’s story, they wanted to sing ‘Amazing Grace’ for him while he was waiting for his food.
“I’m blown away,” wrote restaurant owner Sanjay Maharaj on Facebook. “Mr. Chauvin is dying and he wanted one of his last meals at The Little Big Cup. Our employees and guests joined his family celebrating his wonderful life.”
As the employees are singing, the room is filled with such incredible voices and harmonies. The elderly man and his wife start wiping away their tears, and she reaches across the table to hold his hand. Such a beautiful and emotional sight!
At the end of the video, the whole room cheers for the singers in the restaurant and the man as he waves to the room to show his appreciation.
What an incredible act of kindness. I’m sure the elderly man and his family were blown away by the heartfelt song from the restaurant employees and felt incredibly special to be honored in that way.
