Denny's customer acts as 'angel on Earth', touches hearts with act of kindness

On a Facebook page dedicated to those stories that make you feel warm and fuzzy inside, a Utah woman posted a story that she thought proved there are walking angels on Earth. 

“Today I met an angel. You came into a Denny’s I work at in Utah. You asked me, ‘Can I have a waitress who is a single mother?’” the woman posted.

That touched the woman so much, in fact, that she broke down and had to take a moment for herself. When she returned, the man was gone. But he didn't leave without one last act of kindness. This one, for his waitress Crystal. 

“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 seven families ate for free,” she wrote.
