We’ve all experienced losing a loved one but I can’t imagine losing my entire family. Well, that’s exactly what happened to this man and how he dealt with the pain is extraordinary and worthy of sharing a million times.
A lonely man in Utah walked into a Denny’s restaurant and asked the hostess an unusual question which would normally set off flags that this guy could possibly be a problem- but he was far from being a problem. In fact he was an ANGEL!
The man asked the hostess for “a waitress who is a single mother.” The woman wrote in her Facebook post that she thought it was “very odd” but sat him a waitress named Crystal’s section.
The man sat in the booth for 2 hours, just watching the customers come and go.

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,” the hostess wrote. Then she asked the man, “Why did you do that?” His reply made the hostess turn and walk away.
The man told her that “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,” she said.
The man quietly left the restaurant, but not before leaving his waitress Crystal a very generous tip. He gave the single mother a $1,500 tip on a $21.34 food bill!
The hostess took to social media in hopes of finding this ‘Angel’ and wanted him to know a few things about his waitress.
“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,” she wrote.
“Because of you she gets her new place next week,” she said.
“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.”
Wow. This man is a hero.
We ask our good Lord to watch over this Angel and bring him happiness.
God knows he deserves it.
