"I said, ‘What? Are you serious?’ He said yes. I couldn't believe it. I couldn't hardly breathe. It took my breath away," Pearson told 5 News KFSM.

Platt said after talking with Pearson a bit, he thought she could use the money. "We talked about the Lord and about her life and her children. I got the impression that she was having a hard time of it, so I thought I'd just help her out a little bit," he told 5 News.

An hour later, Platt returned to the diner to order pie and left Pearson another $1,000 tip. "Money is just paper or numbers on a screen," Platt said. "Self-gratification only goes so far. So, when you're helping another person, you're adding something to the world. It's an investment and people, people are what's important."
