James Morales reveals he just had to share the “saddest experience of his life” after seeing the man, who used to come to the pharmacy two or three times a week with his wife to pick up their medications.

This all changed when one day, the old man came into the shop alone, prompting James to wonder why.

James describes the heartwrenching moment as the elderly man stood in front of him, with tears in his eyes. The man then told James how upset he was that he hadn’t passed before his beloved wife.

As if that wasn’t heartbreaking enough, the man went on to give James and his co-workers some wise words he wish he had known before his wife had died.

Some wise words we should all take heed of.
