Couple Gets Special Surprise At Their Favorite Restaurant

Emerson Evelhoch of North Middleton Township, Pennsylvania and his wife, Kathy, have been eating out more often after Kathy was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's disease when she was 56 years old. Emerson says Kathy has "always been a good cook," but now has to make specific accommodations when eating at restaurants with his wife.

He told WHP News, "Her last job was working at the high school library, and she couldn't put two journals in order and that's when we start pursuing the disease." According to the Alzheimer’s Association, approximately 200,000 Americans have early onset Alzheimer’s. Emerson has since retired to help his wife. He stated, "She's always been my best friend. She still is. I still tell her things."

The couple often eats at Chen's Asian Restaurant in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. Emerson also has to cut his wife's meal so she can properly chew and swallow her food. Jay Chen, owner of the restaurant said, "The husband was cutting every piece of the meat in small pieces so [he] could feed her by fork. It was very touching." On March 16, another couple noticed Emerson's sweet actions. Yet, when Emerson received his bill, there was a note letting him know that it was paid.

The note read, "We noticed your loving care of your wife. Being a caregiver can be hard, so we wanted your dinner tonight to be our treat. God bless." Emerson was grateful. He said, "Life is stressful. This is stressful. It was the perfect time for me to just stop and take a breath and remember how many nice people there are."
