Hurricanes like Harvey and Irma lead to devastating damages of the whole communities. Thousands of people had to leave their houses and look for a safe place for themselves and their families. Of course, they gave up most of the stuff and took only the necessary belongings. However, the disasters united people since they are trying to fix the devastating damages together.
This couple is one of those, who had to escape from Hurricane Irma. But they met a lot of wonderful people on their way, who were ready to help.
Deanna Feist has recently shared her story on Facebook, which became viral right away. She came with her husband to Tennessee from Florida to avoid the disaster. One day, they decided to have a lunch at the Old Mill restaurant, and it turned out to be one of the best experiences ever. The manager, Mo, made sure they received the order in no time. In the end, Deanna and her husband received an envelope instead of the bill.
Inside they found a letter and $200 in cash. The manager was so kind he also provided them with free meal vouchers. Please, see the post to read the whole letter.
“I want the world to see how generous others can still be. My husband and I are in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and we extended our stay from Brandon, Florida to avoid hurricane Irma. As we were headed to lunch at The Old Mill restaurant, all the lights in our dash came on, from airbags to tire pressure. After We shut the car off, it wouldn’t turn on again. We asked the gentleman in the car next to us if we could get a jump, he happily helped us out. As I went inside to put our names on the waitlist, he told my husband he was the manager and he would get us in right away. His name was Mo, and he had been running the restaurant for 23 years. He got us a table, and our lunch came out quicker than could be expected. As we finished up, our waitress put an envelope on our table and said it was from the manager, and that our meals were on the house. Inside was a voucher for free meals, $200 cash and a letter. The Letter reads:
‘You are probably here to escape the Hurricane Irma. My brother lives in Tallahassee, Fl. I am saddened to see such devastation in this beautiful state. I hope everything will turn out ok for you guys. Enclosed please accept my gift to you in case you need to buy a battery for your car. Also I am enclosing a meal ticket so you can come back to eat here. Good luck and Thanks for visiting my restaurant
Mo Tamaddoni, General Manager.’
This act of selflessness and generosity has touched my heart. There are still good people out there! I promise I will pay it forward! This man is a God send.”
