Nine officer stopped off to grab some food after attending a funeral for Steven Smith, a SWAT officer. Their server, Jessica Dunbar, became extremely upset when she realized why they were there and why they were so sad. At the end of the meal, she dropped the following note on their table.
According to a local NBC report:
“Officers,” she wrote, “Your bill is on me today. I can’t imagine the day you all have had, let alone what you go through every day. I hope your days get better. So much respect. #WeSeeYou #PoliceLivesMatter #RIPOfficerSmith”
“I just wanted to do something nice,” Dunbar said. “You can’t put a dollar amount on making somebody happy.”
Lt. Jeff Shelton, with the Wellington Police Department, was one of those at the restaurant.
“It really touched all of our hearts,” Wellington said. “We weren’t expecting to be treated any different than normal, and just for somebody to come and do that, it really made our day.”
Dunbar’s father is apparently a retired police officer and she personally identified with the officer’s tough day.
