Everyone Stunned By What Man Does After Sitting Alone In Denny’s For Hours

A waitress in a Denny's restaurant in Utah was struggling with terrible financial hardships. The young mother and her son were officially homeless, and living in a shelter. She was desperately working to try and save up enough to rent an apartment, but things were not progressing quickly enough. She prayed for a miracle, and then an angel walked into the restaurant.

A Denny's worker reports that a man came into their restaurant and asked to be seated in the station of a single mother. The worker was struck by the odd request, but sat him in a station belonging to Crystal, the homeless mother.

The man, now identified as Briggs VanNess, didn't order much. He spent a long time at his table, looking around the restaurant, watching others. What most people didn't realize was that VanNess was quietly paying the bill for families who came in for dinner that night.

“Seven families came in and ate while you were there and you paid every one of their bills, over $1,000 you paid for people you didn’t even know,” said the Denny's worker in a post on Facebook about the incident.

The worker asked VanNess why he was doing the good deed, and the man's response was heartbreaking. “Family is everything, I’ve lost all mine," he responded.

The worker had to rush away from the table for fear of bursting into tears.

Before leaving, VanNess left Crystal a $1,500 tip. That money changed her life; it enabled the young mother to put down first month's rent and fees on a new apartment. She and her son were homeless no longer.

"I grew up with a single mother of six — we were poor and homeless a lot. I'd spend many nights at my mother's friends' houses, my mother was dying from cancer but somehow managed to survive," said VanNess. "But I watched and suffered for years as I watched her work her hands to the bone to give us a good life. She raised us to be kind and help others. Many years down the road I was facing prison and getting in trouble and it ended up causing me to lose my family because I was a really terrible person."

VanNess says he changed. "Many years of fighting my demons, I finally found the light. Now I've been helping others as I was raised to do, I spent many years becoming a better person. And now it's time to pay it back, I'm a successful business owner and I help as many as I feel that need it."

“You left before any of us could say thank you, I hope you read this because you’re truly an amazing person and you stole the hearts of every one of us here. Thank you,” wrote the Denny's worker.
