Talk about generosity.

This is such a heartwarming story – we had to share!

A post has been shared hundreds of times and it is a simple post, with a simple message – that is simply incredible!

Alyssa Zehler posted this photo on Facebook.

This is the post!

“To the couple that paid for 18 meals at Fuji Grill in Niagara Falls for lunch today, thank you. We are without words, and beyond grateful for your generosity. You brought some of us to tears and it is something we will never forget ❤️”

We reached out to Alyssa and here’s what she told us when we asked about the lunch! “We were there from the base for lunch, there was 18 of us. We are graduating from a class soon so we all wanted to have lunch together. His wife offered to take a picture of all of us as they were finishing up with their daughter and 2 sons I believe. They thanked us for our service and we thanked them for their support. I just want to make it clear though, collectively we don’t want to find these two individuals, we just wanted them to know how grateful we were for their generosity. They wanted to remain anonymous and we completely understand.”

We don’t know who they are – and they want to keep it that way BUT we’ll just say thank you to that amazing and generous couple. We are so incredibly grateful to each and every man and woman serving in our military now and all of those who have served in the past. We can’t imagine what you sacrifice but we hope you know how much it means to us!!
