This is a cool story about small town generosity.

ANGOLA, Ind.—A waitress got more than a $5 tip for her friendly service. She also got a $10,000 gift.
Jessica Osborne was so overcome by the gift she cried so hard she could barely breathe. When she told a co-worker what had happened she called her a liar.

"I got that a lot," Osborne said.

The money came from a mother and her two sons who want to remain anonymous. The three were regular customers at the Pizza Hut in Angola and she remembered their order: two Mountain Dews, a cup of hot water for a bag of tea the woman would bring in, and a large Meat Lover's Stuffed Crust pizza, half without pepperoni and half with mushrooms and black olives.

Amazing the lives we touch, having no realization of the impact it might have on each person whose path we cross... good or bad. Just one kind word or gesture may make all the difference in someone's life.

Hey.

The Columbus Dispatch didn't really fully cover the story.

The woman had lost her husband and a child. She received a large settlement and wanted to do something nice. She appeared on tv the other day with her daughter and the waitress. The waitress wants to go to school to be a photographer. The unfortunate thing is the waitress will lose a chunk to taxes.
