It was just another day for Evoni Williams, 18, as she worked her job at a Texas Waffle House in La Marque on March 3rd. According to Williams, the elderly customer is a regular of the restaurant and he was having a hard time eating.

"I had no coordination feeling or strength in my hands", he said.

Even though Evoni was extremely busy, she didn't hesitate. She grabbed a knife and fork and started cutting up Charpentier's food into small pieces so it would be easier for him to eat.

The image was taken and posted to Facebook last week by customer Laura Wolf, after she watched Williams tend to 78-year-old Adrien Charpentier.
