"I gave her a drink for free and a few gift cards so that she could come back if she needed anything," Dunn said. "Then, I asked her if she minded if I prayed for her, and I was planning on praying for her when I got home, but then one of my other co-workers reached out through the window and grabbed her hand." Dunn quickly reached out, as did another co-worker, Evan Freeman. "I asked for peace for her, her family, and her husband's family," he said. They prayed together for three minutes.
"At that point we were all in tears," Dunn said. "I went home that night and told my parents about this incredible thing that happened." Dunn had no idea that anyone had captured the moment until Saturday. "I saw the photo getting shared online and I thought it was so nice," franchise owner Jessica Chudekits told BuzzFeed. "But then I started studying the photo and I recognized Peirce and Evan and the background and I realized it was my own store!"
