PIC: Widow Gets A Special Surprise On First Wedding Anniversary Alone – This Is Really Special

This human kindness is incredible.


“‘Til death do us part” is a pretty strong promise, and for one Reddit user, his parents kept that vow.

Spending every wedding anniversary together at a local Red Lobster, Coppin-it-washin-it‘s sister brought their mam out on the night of the anniversary to mark the memory with her mother.

It was only when they went to pay, did they get an incredible gesture rather than a bill:

The note read:

‘We are sorry to hear about your husband’s passing, but we appreciate your loyalty in spending 31 years of your anniversary with us. For your appreciation your meal is on us! We look forward to spending your next anniversary with us?

Red Lobster + your server, Taylor’

Coppin-it-washin-it explained how the server had come to learn about the family death, writing:

‘The waitress asked if there was a special occasion or if they were just hungry. My sister explained that my parents had been going there every year for their anniversary. The waitress then asked why my dad wasn’t there and they explained how he had passed away in March. She said she was sorry to hear that and then it was just a normal meal like any other after that. Until they got the bill.’
