"Snapped this picture while waiting in line at the Dutch Bros on 138th Avenue today," Barbara Danner posted on the Dutch Bros Coffee timeline.  

"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!" 

Since being posted last week, the post garnered nearly 100,000 shares, 337,000 reactions and 11,000 comments.  

The commenters rave over Dutch Bros. Coffee, a drive-thru coffee company started in Oregon. The company now has nearly 200 locations.  

"Dutch Bros. Coffee has always focused more on people than the bottom line, with a desire to transform lives rather than conduct transactions. In 2011, the company donated more than $1 million to nonprofit organizations, including local food banks, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, American Cancer Society and Boys & Girls Clubs of America," according to their website.  

Though each franchise is locally owned and operated, the employees follow an Optimist's Creed, known as the Dutch Creed: 

To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel there is something in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
To think only the best, to work only for the best and expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
