"Employee Evoni Williams went above and beyond to make sure her customer could enjoy his breakfast".

"I had no coordination, no feeling, and strength in my hands", Adrian Charpentier, the customer told ABC 13 News.

Yet, humble as ever, Evoni says she can't believe that she is getting attention for something she would do for any other customer.

Wolf updated the profile picture on her Facebook page to show a picture of her standing next to Williams.

Wolf concluded her post saying: "I'm thankful to have seen this act of kindness and caring at the start of my day while everything in this world seems so negative".

Dolphins set to release Ndamukong Suh, report says
Suh's departure would be the latest in cost-cutting moves by the Dolphins, who missed the playoffs in 2017 after finishing 6-10. Miami already has offloaded running back Jay Ajayi last season, and last week sent wide receiver Jarvis Landry to the Browns.

Williams' act of kindness has since gone viral on social media. "If we could all be like this waitress & take time to offer a helping hand". She and her mother were brought to tears when she was presented with a 16-thousand dollar scholarship to Texas Southern University. "And I did", Evoni Williams recalled.

Even tough Evoni was extremely busy she didn't hesitate. "When I saw it, it's just something I would do for anybody". As of Sunday, more than 130,000 people had reacted to the Facebook post and almost 7,000 have shared it. Williams said she was surprised by the outpouring of praise for her act of kindness.

A teenager from Houston, Texas, was honored for her act of kindness after she took the time to help an elderly patron in need at the La Marque Waffle House, the restaurant she works at.

TSU says they have assigned a guidance counselor to help Williams enroll at the university, according to KHOU-TV. "She has the character of the type of students we want at Texas Southern University". "It just came from the heart", Williams said.
