The Madison County Sheriff’s Office has extended virtual thanks to an anonymous restaurant server from Rexburg after the server paid the bill for two sheriff’s deputies and left a note of gratitude.

In a Facebook post, the sheriff’s office on Tuesday posted a photo of the note that the Fresco’s Kitchen & Grill server left.

“I know it’s not even close to enough, but this one’s on me as a small ‘thank you,’” the server wrote. “You guys sacrifice so much for us, and I greatly appreciate it.”

The sheriff’s department said acts of kindness like this one are always unexpected — and tug on the deputies’ heartstrings.

“To: whomever it was that did this kind and generous deed...THANK YOU!,” they wrote on Facebook.
