On Wednesday night, an Oklahoma girl named Kelsey Harmon, tweeted a photo of her grandpa that she never expected to go viral, but people everywhere are freaking out about it.
The photo she took was of her grandpa as she sat down to eat dinner with him, but what she said in the description broke hearts around the world!

Along with the photo, she wrote, “Dinner with papaw tonight…he made 12 burgers for all 6 grandkids and I’m the only one who showed. ? love him.”
Kelsey told BuzzFeed News that her grandpa was just trying to get all of the grandkids over for a meal while they were all on spring break, because it’s hard for them to all to get together like they used to. When she sent out the tweet, she never expected it to blow up, but it quickly did. She had over 70,000 retweets in less than 24 hours. People’s emotions were going haywire from this post..

Of course, grandpa doesn’t really use social media, so he probably has no clue that he’s a huge viral star now. I don’t know about you, but I would love to share a burger with this man.
