Death is inevitable after birth, but with old age, the notion is more certain than ever. For some, it could be a matter of days, weeks, or years. For 82-year-old Dan Peterson, the death of his wife came as a surprise. 

After the sudden tragedy, Dan spent weeks motionless, unable to fathom the reality flashing in front of his eyes. 

Fortunately, it was all about to change for Dan. The 82-year old detest grocery shopping, especially when he was mourning the death of his lovely wife. He was strolling through the vegetable aisle when he met with bright eyes and a lovely voice. 

It was of 4-year old Norah. The toddler was shopping on a special occasion, “her birthday.” Apart from a friendly smile, she reached to Dan saying, “Hi, old person. Today’s my birthday.” Her mother, Tara, on the other hand, was horrified over her daughter’s comment. She apologized right away. But Dan was not upset over the remark of an adorable toddler. 

The strangers chitchat for a bit and went their separate ways but after a big hug from Norah. Tara took a picture of the new buddies. Soon after reaching home, she posted it on social media. Some close to Dan recognized him and pointed out this was the first time he smiled after his wife’s demise. 

Without any delay, Tara ringed Dan and went for a visit. Dan and Norah are still great buddies, and they visit each other almost every week. Did you like the story? Do share your thoughts in the feed.
