note with tip-hotdogs for wes-ClaireHudson-Imgur

Claire Hudson, a 25-year-old waitress, got a tip and a note that melted her heart. She didn’t know it at the time, but she became part of a heartfelt tradition to honor a brother’s lost sibling.

She was working a double shift at local burger joint in Tennessee, when a couple came in and ordered a couple of hot dogs and beers. Before leaving they left a generous tip — 36$ dollars on a $28 tab.

What touched her most was the note written on the back of the receipt:

“Today is my brother’s b-day. He would have been 36 today. Every year I go eat his favorite meal (hot dogs) and tip the waitress his age. Happy B-day Wes.childes-nativity scene-jefftaylor-submitted

Now Claire and the restaurant owner, located in Spring Hill, want to honor Wes every day with a hot dog named after him. They are looking for the anonymous diners in hopes of finding out what toppings he liked on his hot dogs.
