(FOX NEWS) - An unlikely pair who shared a meal at a McDonald’s in Indiana is going viral for the best reason.

The two strangers caught the attention of another customer, Amanda Craft, who was touched by the heartfelt moment they shared.

Craft, a teacher from Noblesville, was dining at the fast food chain with her colleagues Nov. 8 when she spotted an older woman, known only as Jan, ask a young man, Eric Haralson, 28, if she could join him at his table.

“Shout out to this guy! This elderly lady (seemed to be a little lonely) came up to him and asked if she could sit with him. Without hesitation, this guy said ‘of course,’ Craft wrote in a post on Facebook, along with a photo of the duo enjoying each other’s company.
