A young boy took his grand father to an eatery for a night supper. Grandpa being extremely old and weak, while eating, dropped some food on his shirt and trousers. Other dinners watched him in disdain while his boy quietly clean up the food particles hanging on his mouth with his towel. 

After he finished eating, the son who was not in any way embarrassed, gently lead him to the wash room, wiped the food particles, clean up the stains, brushed his hair and fitted his spectacles firmly.

When they turned out, the whole eatery was watching them in dead silence, not ready to handle how somebody could humiliate themselves openly like that. The son settled the bill and began exiting with his dad. 

All of a sudden, an elderly man amongst the dinners who could not keep it to him self anymore with the boys behaviours as he was pleased, called out to him  and said  " Young man, don't  you think you have left something behind?'

The boy answered, "No sir, I haven't". 

The man countered, "Yes, you have! You just left a lesson for every son and hope for every father". 

The eatery went quiet. 

To care for those who once cared for us is one of the highest honors we could give back in return.   We all know, how our parents cared for us for every little things.  Love them, respect them, and care for them.
