Posted at 6:29 PM, Jul 28, 2020

A gentleman who is very ill wanted to visit a favorite restaurant for what might be the last time.

When the employees and customers there heard about this, they sang "Amazing Grace" for him. Now the video of that love has been shared more than 4,000 times on Facebook.

"I’m blown away," wrote Little Big Cup owner Sanjay Maharaj on his Facebook page. "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."

The video shows the gentleman brushing away tears as the people in the restaurant sang to him.

"Y’all in a time of all this uncertainty, isn’t this truly amazing? People coming together ❤️," Maharaj wrote. "What an amazing tribute to this Wonderful Man, Veteran, Husband & Father! Kevin and I are simply honored that our little restaurant on the Bayou has become such a special place for so many."
