BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (WTVO) –  A photo of a man standing outside in the rain with his hat off and head bowed during a funeral procession in Indiana goes viral. 

The woman who took the photo, Joy Wagler, says she doesn’t know the man but described him as a “wonderful example” of how people should act when a funeral procession passes by.

“He is a wonderful example of how we need to act when a funeral procession comes through while we are driving,” Wagler said. “Not only did he pull over and stop, but he got out of his truck, took his hat off and stood [in the rain] with his hat on his chest and head bowed!”
