A heartwarming photo of an elderly couple at a Sonic in Franklin has gone viral.

Fairview minister, Brent Kelley, witnessed the sweet moment at the Old Hickory Sonic and snapped a picture.

It wasn't until he posted it on Facebook that he realized how much it touched people.

The post has been shared almost 250,000 times and has 42,000 comments.

In the post, Kelley said:

So today, I took the kids to the pool and we stopped for ice cream on the way home. 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.
