VANCOUVER, Wash. -- A photo of workers at a Washington state coffee shop is going viral for all the right reasons.

A customer in line at a Dutch Bros. coffee stand in Vancouver captured the emotional moment on Saturday. The photo shows several baristas grabbing a customer's hand and praying with her.

"She's like, 'She's just having a really bad day. Her husband passed.' And as soon as she said that, I was like, 'There's nothing more you need to say. We got this. We're going to do what we do every time we get someone who’s in pain or hurt. We're going to give them our love,'" barista Evan Freeman told KPTV.

Freeman and his coworker Pierce Dunn offered her a free drink and a moment of comfort.

The customer behind that car, Barbara Danner, shared the photo on the Dutch Bros. Facebook page with this caption:

"Snapped this picture while waiting in line at the Dutch Bros on 138th Avenue today. Turns out the young lady in line ahead of us lost her 37-year-old husband last night. 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!"

The photo has been shared on Facebook more than 92,000 times.
