An American couple out for a romantic dinner in the New Year received an unexpected note after their meal.

Before they were able to pay for the bill, they found a note sent over from a neighbouring table by a kind gentleman.

The note sadly explained that he had very recently lost his wife of 43 years, but that the couple reminded him of himself and his wife when they were young. The note ended with the diner generously offering to pay their bill, as it would ‘make him happy..for now.’

It reads:


You don’t know me but my beautiful wife of 43 years died last week. Tonight I dined alone for the first time. You remind me of us many years ago.

Please allow me to buy your dinner. Enjoy!

It will put a smile on Carol’s face and make me happy…for now.

Happy New Year!
