Pizza Worker Travels Over 200 Miles To Bring Dying Man Favorite Pizza at Midnight

In a heart-melting gesture, a teenage pizza restaurant worker traveled 225 miles to deliver a dying man his favorite pizza in the middle of the night. Now, for a restaurant that doesn’t even do home deliveries, this gesture sure is a sign that there is still some good left in the world.

Dalton Shaffer,an eighteen year old teen who works at Steve’s Pizza in West Michigan, went out of his way to give one family something to smile about at a time they needed it most.

Rich Morgan and his wife Julie who live in Indianapolis were long-time customers of Steve’s Pizza and had been planning a trip to the Battle Creek restaurant to have a bite of their favorite pizza.

Unfortunately, before they could make their trip, Rich’s condition deteriorated and he had to be taken into hospice as his battle with cancer was coming to an end.

Julie’s dad, David Dalke, secretly called Steve’s Pizza to tell them about Rich, with hope that they would maybe send a card with best wishes out to the family to uplift their spirits and make them feel better about their cancelled trip. Dalton was the one who picked up that phone call and he felt that a card wouldn’t quite cut it.

Dalton who is a manager at Steve’s Pizza, immediately fired up the pizza oven and prepared a pepperoni and a mushroom and pepperoni pizza, got in his car and drove for more than three hours through the night to Indianapolis. He finally arrived at around 2.30 am with the dying man’s favorite pizza in hand.

Speaking to Fox 2 Detroit, Dalton said, “He said that his family was thinking about coming up and grabbing pizza. But due to the circumstances they weren’t able to do that.”

“The family came out, gave me a hug. It was cool. The expressions on their face and everything like that.” He added.

The pleasantly surprised family dug into their pizza and then shared the heartwarming story on Facebook thanking Dalton for what they described as “the best pizza in the world.”

“Anybody that is watching this, keep them in mind and pray for them. I hope the best for them and I hope the Lord gives them comfort.” Dalton said.

The family offered Dalton a place to spend the night as he got there in the wee hours of the night, however, the teen declined as he had to drive back to make it into his shift on time the same day.

A New Hampshire school cafeteria worker’s act of kindness got her fired and it is causing quite a roar online. Bonnie Kimball tells the Valley News she was fired by her employer, a vendor that supplies food to the Mascoma Valley Regional High School in Canaan.

This termination came a day after she gave a student lunch, even though he couldn’t pay for it. The New Hampshire Union Leader says that Bonnie Kimball let the child take $8 worth of food on March 28, and asked him to inform his mom he needed money to pay it back.

“I quietly said, ‘Tell (your) mom you need money.” Kimball told the Valley News

Despite the boy paying the tab the next day on March 29, Kimball was called into one of the managers’ office who had witnessed Kimball’s act of leniency and fired her.

The food vendor explained in a letter that the district manager witnessed Kimball violating their company’s ‘cash handling procedures, the school’s charge policy and federal regulation governing free meals.’

According to Valley News, Kimball had worked for the company for five years serving lunch to the teens at Mascoma Valley Regional High, whom she called another family.

She also said that she had been following her direct supervisor’s orders to avoid causing a scene, as the company, Cafe Services, was trying to have its contract with the school district renewed.

Kimball added that she’d been told by her boss to give food to students who couldn’t pay and then tell them they needed money on their accounts.

Two of Kimball’s former coworkers resigned in protest, and reports say that students and staff at the school are now rallying around her in support.

What do you think? Was Kimball right or wrong for feeding a hungry child? Was the termination of her job even justified? Let us know what you think in the comment section below.

For the following few months, Parker focused on teaching himself how to sew and asked for tips from his grandmother on how to make the perfect dress.

There were instances where Parker found himself making sections of the dress multiple times just to make them perfect. “I’m such a perfectionist that I was up adding more stones to the dress even the night before prom.” he said.

Passenger Snaps Photo of Mother-Daughter Pilot Team That Went Viral

Recently, a passenger snapped a photo of a mother-daughter pilot team on his flight from Los Angeles to Atlanta and it is melting hearts across the world.

The two pilots, Captain Wendy Rexon and her daughter first officer Kelly Rexon, were in the cockpit of a Delta Boeing 757 when a passenger asked to take their picture.

That passenger was Dr. John Watret, the chancellor of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Dr. Watret told the Embry-Riddle Newsroom that he learned that his flight crew were a family affair after overhearing a mom asking a flight attendant if her two kids could go look at the flight deck.

“The flight attendant said they could – and that they would be surprised.” Watret recalled.

Indeed, when the family returned to their seats, Watret said he overheard them talking about the mother and daughter pilots who were flying the plane. “I thought that was amazing, I was in awe. I asked if I could visit them, too.” Watret said.

After taking their picture, Watret posted the photo on his twitter account captioning it, “Just flew from LAX to ATL on Delta piloted by this mother daughter flight crew. Great flight. Inspiring for you women.”

The post quickly went viral, with people commenting on the photo and saying how incredible it was to see the mother-daughter pair working together.

“How about a big congratulations for a mother-daughter team,” said someone online. “That’s a great accomplishment!”

“I think it’s inspiring for everyone because it’s not every time you see parents and their offspring doing great things together.” wrote another.

“That is just the most amazing, wonderful news ever-seriously. My mother and I would never have flown together as crew. We couldn’t even agree on having the radio on/off in the car!” Another person added.

The official Delta Twitter account joined in, too, tweeting, ‘Family flight crew goals!’

As it turns out, Captain Wendy and Kelly Rexon aren’t the only people in their family who are pilots! Wendy’s father is a retired pilot, her husband is currently a pilot with American Airlines, and her other daughter is a pilot as well.

Dr. Watret was elated to see that his post of the mother-daughter pilot team went viral particularly for the attention that it brought to women working in the aeronautical industry, as he works in a university that is focused on creating more opportunities for women in the world of aviation.
