The coffee shop's employees stopped what they were doing to pray with a woman whose husband had died the night before.
A Vancouver, Wash. woman received kindness and a prayer along with her cup of coffee at a Dutch Bros. Coffee Saturday, and a photo capturing the kind moment has been circulating online since.
As The Oregonian reports, Dutch Bros. employees saw that a woman in their drive-thru window was upset. She told them her husband had died the night before, and the coffee workers stopped to hold her hand and pray with her.
“That moment was absolutely incredible,” Pierce Dunn, who prayed with the woman, told The Oregonian. “It was so emotional.”
Barbara Danner, who was waiting in line, snapped a photo of the moment and posted it on Facebook. She wrote:

“When the DB guys & gals noticed she was falling apart, they stopped everything and prayed with her for several minutes, invited her to come back for prayer and support, as well as anything else that she might need. Prayers for the young family, and you know where to stop for coffee!”
Danner’s post has been shared more than 100,000 times on Facebook.
The employees pictured in the photo said they hoped the woman could find peace.
“I hope that she is starting to find some solid ground, because when I saw her face it looked like her entire floor got ripped from under her and she was falling,” another employee, Evan Freeman, told KATU.
