Woman Pays for Stranger’s Birthday Cake At Grocery Store In Honor of Late Son’s Birthday

An Indiana woman went to pick up her son’s birthday cake at her local Kroger only to learn the cake had been paid for by a stranger.

When Carolyn Mick arrived at the Plainfield Kroger, she was told the cake had already been paid for by an anonymous woman who left a note.

The note read:

“Today is my son’s 35th birthday. It is his fifth in heaven. I wanted to honor and remember him by paying it forward. May you make tons of precious memories to remember for a lifetime. God bless you and yours – Tyler’s Mom.”

Carolyn posted the note in the Facebook group, Town of Plainfield Chatter, thanking Tyler’s mom.

“Dear Toni.. you know who you are and I want to express how moved I am. This means so much that my husband and I cried together. With the turmoil of things going on it reminds us of what really matters LIFE!” she wrote.

The heartwarming post received an overwhelming reaction from residents in the Facebook group.
