VICTORVILLE (CBSLA.com) — A waitress’ note to a patron who picked up the tab for an elderly couple at a restaurant in Victorville has gone viral.

On Wednesday morning, Kirsten Kinzle paid for a couple’s $30 breakfast at Mimi’s Cafe because she thought her loud party was ruining the duo’s peaceful time together.

“You just see people sometimes that just look like a great couple and they really loved each other,” Kinzle said.

Server Stephanie Miller then wrote Kinzle a note that said she did an amazing thing because the older man recently lost his brother.

“I instantly started crying,” Kinzle said. “I just hope it made them for just a moment happy with that amount of sadness.”

Miller was also having an emotional day because it had been a year to the day that someone she knew had passed away.

“I knew that if I tried to tell her the story myself I would probably start crying like a baby,” Miller said.

The note and story are a hit on Facebook with more than 1,500 likes.
