No matter what happens in life, your family is there to have your back. A strong relationship with your family is one of the most special things you can ever have, and we should cherish every moment we spend with them. But what happens when you lose that special relationship? How do you return to normal life once your support system is no longer there?
This is one of life’s most difficult questions, and everyone handles it differently. But one man in that very situation recently did something so heartwarming that it touched the hearts of all those who witnessed it, and the millions more who saw it online. It took place in a very unlikely location – a Denny’s in Utah. A man walked inside the diner and made a very strange request to the wait staff. Then he sat quietly by himself for two hours … and it wasn’t until he left that everyone inside realized what he did.
Scroll down to learn the full story and read the viral Facebook post by the waitress that served him.
Today I met an angel. You came into a Denny’s I work at in Utah. You asked me, ‘Can I have a waitress who is a single mother?’ I thought it was very odd, but I sat you in Crystal’s section. You sat there for 2 hours just watching people. 7 families came in and ate while you were there and you paid every one of their bills, over $1,000 you paid for people you didn’t even know. I asked, ‘Why did you do that?’ You simply said, ‘Family is everything, I’ve lost all mine.’ Looking into your eyes while you said that made me tear up (It’s why I walked away so quickly) as soon as I got in the back I broke down in tears because your eyes had so much pain in them. I just wanted to let you know, the waitress Crystal that you requested was living in a shelter with her son until she was able to save up enough to get a place. Your bill was $21.34 and you left her a $1,500 tip, because of you she gets her new place next week, because of you 7 families ate for free. Crystal told me she prayed the night before for a miracle and God sent you. You left before any of us could say thank you, I hope you read this because you’re truly an amazing person and you stole the hearts of every one of us here. Thank you.
