For everyone, family means everything. Its an unconditional bond of love they share, and regardless of what you are going through they come and support you. They are there to celebrate the joys and reduce the sadness or troubles from our lives. Losing a family, means losing your life! Can’t express how important family is in a person’s life.

So when we lose our family, it can truly be a devastating experience. For one stranger in Utah, losing his whole family left him pondering and wondering what his purpose in life was. 

A stranger entered a Denny’s in Utah, and a woman greets him at the door. As soon as he entered, he made a very off request.  He asked to be seated at a table that was served by a “waitress who is a single mother.” But coincidentally, this woman’s coworker, Crystal, was a single mother who had an open table.

For the next 2 hours, this stranger sat at his table, not ordering anything or eating. Instead, he intently observed the families around him.

Then, when they were finished eating, he chose to do something absolutely shocking. No one could have expected him to do this…

In a Facebook post that has gone viral with over 113,000 shares and 276,000 likes and over 10,000 comments, a woman recounts an experience while working at Denny’s.

She says:

“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.”


What an incredible story! We feel sorry for what he is going through (its hard to lose a family), but what he did for seven other families and the his waitress is simply heartwarming!
