Emotional Waitress Marches Over To Customer's Table, Hands Them This Note

Officer Steven Smith, who died during a SWAT stand-off in Columbus, Ohio, was put in the ground that day. Some of his fellow officers stopped for a bite to eat after the very difficult funeral. The waitress decided then and there that she had to do something nice for them.

Red Robin waitress Jessica Dunbar felt terrible for the nine police officers who had sat in her station after Smith's funeral. She thought an act of kindness might soften the hard day, so she picked up the tab for lunch.

After paying the bill, which came out to $123.00, Dunbar left the officers a note. "Your bill is on me today, I can't image the day you all have had, let alone what you go through every day. I hope your days get better. So much respect."

She concluded the note with #weseeyou, #policelivesmatter and #RIPofficerSmith.

Dunbar's father is a retired police officer. The death of Smith really hit home with her family. “[Officer Smith] left behind a wife and kids. It could’ve been me. It could’ve been my dad," she said.

According to NBC4, Dunbar says she saw her father cry for the first time in her life when she told him what she did.

“It really touched all of our hearts,” said Lt. Jeff Shelton, one of the officers dining at the Red Robin that day. “We weren’t expecting to be treated any different than normal, and just for somebody to come and do that, it really made our day.”
