George Travis' wife of 50 years, Billy Mae, passed away last year. Since then, the 88-year-old has eaten his breakfast next to her photograph at the same restaurant every day. "I bring her with me everywhere I go ... I never go anywhere without my precious wife," he told KSLA.

Travis orders bacon, two eggs and a waffle every morning at Another Broken Egg restaurant in Shreveport, Louisiana, and sits in the same seat where he has a special place for her.

According to the Daily Mail, Travis was divorced and feeling low about his family life when he was set up by a friend to meet Billy Mae decades ago. He found his blind date beautiful, and they were later married, working together for several years in Shreveport at Travis Shoe Stores.

Of her death, Travis says, "It was the hardest thing that's ever happened to me." When other customers started noticing him eating at the restaurant next to his wife's picture, they decided to share his love story.

As reported by KSLA, Travis suffered a heart attack on November 13, but he's doing well and is ready to have breakfast again with his wife very soon.
