A little more than a month ago, Shaun and Debbie Riddle and their new baby, Glorywent to eat at the West Side Cafe in Fort Worth, Texas. Waitress Kayla Lane loves babies, and she noticed.

Last week, Lane saw the couple return to the diner, this time without baby Glory. So Lane asked about the little one.

To Lane's horror, the couple said Glory died unexpectedly of unknown causes. The waitress was shocked and wanted to do something for the Riddles, so she left this note for the couple instead of a bill: "Your ticket has been paid for. We are terribly sorry for your loss. God bless. –The West Side"

But the restaurant's manager said Lane paid the tab with her own money. Lane told KTVT that she often pays for customers "like with military, firefighters" and tries to remain anonymous. 

"I feel privileged that I’m able to do it," she told KTVT.

The Riddles posted the story to Facebook, deeply touched that Lane would do something so kind. They both said they want Glory’s life to have purpose. They believe that seemingly small act of kindness by the waitress is testament to the fact that their baby touched the lives of the people she met in her short life.

"We were grateful to see that there are good people in the world and that people want to help," Debbie Riddle told KTVT.

The couple has created a Facebook page called Glory's Garden in memory of their daughter.
