Best waitress in the world performs good deed for couple who lost their baby
The Forth Worth, Texas, waitress wanted to express her sympathy for the couple.
It’s unimaginably difficult to lose a child, but being constantly asked about your loss by strangers makes the pain even worse. Two parents who frequent a restaurant in Fort Worth, Texas, recently lost their baby, but a waitress at the establishment did what she could to ease their sorrow.
Debbie and Shaun Riddle went to dine at the West Side Cafe last week, and their waitress, Kayla, recognized them from a past visit with their baby girl, Glory. She asked about the baby, and the Riddles had to share some sad news.
“Sadly, we had to tell her baby Glory passed away and is with God now,” Debbie Riddle wrote on Facebook. “She felt so horrible for asking but she was so sweet.”
When it was time to pay the bill, the Riddles got a surprise.
“She didn’t even want us to tip her because she said the company took care of her tip as well,” she wrote. “We hear so much negativity on the news and so that is why I felt led to share this story in hopes that Kayla and this restaurant will get some good recognition.”
Kayla subsequently responded on Facebook to say how surprised she was by the response. She wrote:
When this couple came into west side yesterday, I surprised them by remembering their faces and their lovely baby girl, Glory. I did pay for their meal. I didn’t want any recognition… I just simply wanted the satisfaction of being a helping hand in a time of deep sorrow for this family. However… What I didn’t expect is how much of a blessing their family would be to me. Their faith was apparent and it inspired me so much. The downpour of positive words and chain of love that this story has started around the world is more than I could have ever expected and makes my heart so happy. I’m humbled by this experience and thank the Riddles so much for being the wonderful people that they are and now blessing me with their friendship. I am eternally grateful.
