A Server Paid For A Couple's Meal After Learning Their Daughter Died
A small gesture can go a long way.
Debbie Riddle and husband, Shaun, are regulars at the West Side Cafe in Fort Worth, Texas. They hadn't stopped by in a while, so they were surprised when server Kayla Lane remembered them.
She greeted them and asked about their infant daughter Glory, whom Lane remembered from their last visit. What Lane didn't know was that Glory had died in her sleep only a few weeks before from an unknown cause, the local CBS affiliate reported.
“They kind of looked at each other and were very silent,” Lane said, and Shaun informed her that Glory had died.
Lane felt terrible about asking: "I'm like, 'Oh gosh, I made them remember!' even though it's going through their minds all day, every day," she said.
Wanting to do something for the family, Lane slipped them the bill, which simply said:
Your ticket has been paid for. We are terribly sorry for your loss.
