Deaf Waitress Can’t Afford Hearing Aids. Then She Sees Her Customer’s Tip

Providing great service with a smile is something that waitress Keri Marie Carlson always strives to do when working at her job at GW Carson’s Restaurant in the coastal town of Branford, Connecticut. Her boss describes her as a hard worker and “a joy to have at Carson’s.”

She had no idea when she was showing a customer and his wife to their table on April 10th that he would be leaving her in tears. What happened next is something that has not only changed her life, it’s gone on to touch the lives of those around her.
