Brian works as a waiter at the Doo-Dah Diner in Wichita, Kansas. Despite the fact he suffered with painful dental issues his entire life, everyone who knows Brian loves him for his cheerly disposition. He never stops smiling, even through his mouth full of crooked teeth and the insecurities they caused him.
That’s why Timirie Shibley, who owns the diner with her husband, wasn’t at all surprised when a customer decided to do something incredible for the beloved waiter.
One January morning, Brian served attorney Fred Boettcher and his family at the diner. Fred was immediately struck by Brian’s kind soul and enthusiastic grin.
Having experienced issues with his own teeth when he was younger, Fred felt compelled to step outside of himself and do the unthinkable – even if it meant digging through his own pockets.
As soon as Brian took the family’s order. Fred got up from the table and approached Brian at the hostess stand. Instead of paying the bill that day, Fred ended up offering Brian a gift worth $25,000…and one that touched Brian to tears.
