    According to the worker’s account, a man entered the restaurant and requested to be sat at a table that would be served by a waitress who is a single mother.

    Although the staff member thought the request was “very odd,” they sat the man at a table waitressed by a single mother named Crystal.

    The man allegedly sat at the table for two hours, “just watching people.” During that time, seven families came in and ate, and the man paid for each one of their bills, which in all totaled to over $1,000.

    When the staff member asked the man, “Why did you do that?”, he replied, “Family is everything, I’ve lost all mine.”

    “Looking into your eyes while you said that made me tear up,” the staff member’s account reads. “As soon as I got in the back I broke down in tears because your eyes had so much pain in them.”

    The post continued:

    “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.”

    Since being uploaded last week, the Facebook post has garnered over 330,000 likes and has been shared over 176,000 times.
