An Iowa mother and her two daughters got a special surprise after having a family dinner.
Amy Forbes took her daughters to El Azteca Mexican Restaurant in Ames, Iowa, for dinner during the week of March 13, KCCI reports. When it was time to get the bill, Forbes got an unsigned note from a stranger instead.
“Please enjoy your meal tonight as a gift from our family,” the note reads. “We are honoring our daughter whom we lost to brain cancer eight years ago today. Mexican was her favorite and she would be delighted to know we are paying it forward in this way. Enjoy!”
Waiter Rafael Sanchez said the woman who wrote the note handed it to him after paying the family’s bill and asked him to give it to Forbes.
Forbes told KCCI that while she respects the privacy of the family who paid for their meals, she wants them to know that she and her daughters are "really appreciative.”
