A Waukegan waitress was rewarded for her kindness after a customer died and left her $1,000.

Peg Hewitt passed away recently. The News Sun reports two years ago, waitress Marie Kernin noticed Hewitt's ragged coat and bought her a new one.

Friends think the gift was Hewitt's way of saying thank you to her favorite waitress at Waukegan's Peacock Restaurant.
