A photo posted on Facebook by a man with a broken heart has gone viral, with hundreds of people sharing it.
“I just got back from seeing the world and I was so heartbroken.
I couldn’t stop talking about how I lost a loved one and I couldn.
I didn’t know what to do,” the man wrote in the photo.”
I was crying like a baby and crying because I knew I was going to die but I didn.
It’s one of the hardest things I’ve ever done.
I never thought I’d see someone else in my life who was like this.”
Mr Fennell said he had no idea who the man in the photograph was, but the man’s family were in shock.
“[The man’s mother] was just sobbing and crying and crying.
She was so happy to see him,” Mr Fennelly said.
A family friend shared the photo to Facebook and shared the post with more than 100,000 people.
“My heart goes out to that family,” Mr Meehan said.
“They’ve lost a son and they’ve lost two children, but they’re the ones who have been left to cope and not be able to go out and celebrate a life they love.
They’re just grieving and they’re grieving so hard.
This is just really sad.””
I’ve seen the picture before but I thought I had never seen one like this before.
I was just really surprised.”
Mr Meehm said he hoped to find out more about the man and had been in touch with the family to find more information.
