- Terri Zimmerman always spoils her husband Mark on his every birthday with a Häagen-Dazs ice cream cake.
- But this year, the stores in New Jersey are closed because of the novel coronavirus.
- So she tried to place an order in a New York location and got it for free instead!
Birthdays are a great time to celebrate life, love, and appreciation to the persons dear in our lives. People have different ways of celebrating birthdays and Terri Zimmerman has chosen to dedicate a sweet tradition for her husband Mark since a long time ago.
In May of every year, Terri has always spoiled Mark on his special day with a Häagen-Dazs ice cream cake. However, this year was quite difficult because the lockdown order has shut down businesses in New Jersey. Determined not to miss the tradition, Terri ordered from a store located in New York.
What happened next was totally heartwarming!
Mark works as a pulmonologist and he has been working hard to care for his COVID-19 patients in the ICU and Terry wanted his birthday to be extra special. She explained this when she placed the order and that Mark deserves something to make him joyful despite the current challenges in his job.
When Farrell Sefer, a 19-year-old employee, learned of this, she immediately went to tell her manager, Danny Lifavi. The kind manager not only decided to give the cake for free, but Farrell delivered it personally!
More than that, the couple learned that the sweet employee left a heartwarming note inside the box. “You deserve so much more than this cake. Your sacrifices have saved lives, and no amount of thanks (or cakes) can make up for that,” the letter says. “Thank you for everything you do. Have the happiest birthday.”
This act of kindness and generosity has touched Terri beyond words. This pandemic is a difficult time and we need more good people like Danny and Farrell!
