When one man went to dinner at an Olive Garden in Vernon Hills, Ill with his wife, three-year-old daughter and his brother, they got the most heart-warming surprise. Previously, the family had suffered a terrible loss – their house and all of their possessions burned to the ground.
When the manager came around to their table after dinner to ask how everything was, the little girl said, “Grandpa’s house burned down”.
So what the manager did next was awesome. He brought over the check and this is what it looked like:
When this receipt originally went viral online, a lot of people accused Olive Garden of faking it for publicity. So the family released these photos. This is the bedroom in the burned down house.

It took months to fix the place up again, but is nearing the end now. “There is still a lot of moving in to do, but my parents are very happy to be back in their home.”
“Here’s my mom (Nene) back in the house, that’s my brother working on setting up her Tobi Eye-Gaze computer.”
