A customer at Denny's selflessly left a waitress a massive tip and paid for the dinner of seven families.

Love What Matters posted the amazing story of the unidentified man on their Facebook page.

"Today I met an angel. You came into a Denny’s I work at in Utah. You asked me, ‘Can I have a waitress who is a single mother?’ I thought it was very odd, but I sat you in Crystal’s section. You sat there for 2 hours just watching people. 7 families came in and ate while you were there and you paid every one of their bills, over $1,000 you paid for people you didn’t even know. I asked, 'Why did you do that?' You simply said, ‘Family is everything, I’ve lost all mine,'" the post read.

"Looking into your eyes while you said that made me tear up (It’s why I walked away so quickly) as soon as I got in the back I broke down in tears because your eyes had so much pain in them. I just wanted to let you know, the waitress Crystal that you requested was living in a shelter with her son until she was able to save up enough to get a place. Your bill was $21.34 and you left her a $1,500 tip, because of you she gets her new place next week, because of you 7 families ate for free.

Crystal told me she prayed the night before for a miracle and God sent you. You left before any of us could say thank you, I hope you read this because you’re truly an amazing person and you stole the hearts of every one of us here. Thank you."

The post quickly went viral, garnering over 300,000 likes and nearly 150,000 shares.

"Just reading this made me tear up! Angels are among us every day, disguised as ordinary people!! Thank you for being one, and god bless you!" one commenter wrote.

"There are angels among us. You, kind soul, are obviously one. I pray that you someday find yourself among people whom you can, again, consider family," another added.
