A man coping with the passing of his wife of six-plus decades may have found solace in a surprising way.

This man's family tried to cheer him up by giving him a puppy to take care of and have as a companion. It's a sweet gesture, since the man's wife died late last month after 63 years of marriage. He's also dealing with the recent death of a dog.

As you can see, he's moved by his family's attempts to rally 'round him. And so are we.
