Stranger Pays for Special Family’s Dinner; Note Goes Viral
A stranger is receiving major props after secretly paying for a family’s dinner and leaving a note for the “special family.”
The Englands were out for dinner with their son Riley who suffers from episodes of epilepsy. As soon as they started eating, Riley started causing a bit of a commotion, and the family tried their best to calm him down.
After dinner was over, a server came over in tears, informed them that their bill has been paid, and handed them a note from the generous stranger. “God only gives special children to special people,” it wrote.
“I just broke down, the past month has just been so hard,” Riley’s mom Ashley England recounted. “He just doesn’t know what we’ve been going through and how much it was needed at the moment.”
Ashley updated her Facebook with the story that quickly became viral online. The mom also added that she will stop by the restaurant when it reopens to hopefully meet and thank the stranger personally.
