COHOES, N.Y. – A waitress was moved by a touching note left by one of her customers recently.

“Life is short. A friend of mine died last night. Please enjoy a night w/ someone you love!” the note on the receipt read.

The Breakfast Spot in Cohoes, New York posted a photo of the receipt to Facebook.

“This is the kind of stuff you only read online, but it happened this morning in our restaurant from a loyal customer,” the restaurant wrote.

Becky Nielsen told WTEN that she plans on spending the money in the spirit in which it was given, by taking her boyfriend out for dinner or buying a round of drinks for her friends.
