The waitress told FOX 13 News that she lost her husband two years ago, so she's had trouble heading finances by herself. But the generous tip she's received from the couple has inspired her to pay it forward.
"I'm gonna honor their words and I'm going to pay it forward someday and I'm going to let God bless me enough to do it," she said.
