225-Mile Delivery Man

Once again we have proof that good people still do exist, this time it's in the form of pizza deliverer...A couple's planned getaway to Michigan and to Steve's Pizza in Battle Creek was interrupted by a trip to the ICU, where they learned the husband's battle with cancer was coming to an end.

"They would always say there's no one that measures up to Steve's Pizza," Julie Morgan's father, David Dalke, said. He described the couple's situation, hoping the restaurant might send a card or text.

A employee named Dalton Shaffer answered the phone. Dalton asked what kind of pizza they wanted even after David reminded him where he was calling from.

After talking to Julie's father, Shaffer said he would drive the pizzas to them after closing the shop, even though Steve's Pizza doesn't normally deliver.

Even though it was about 225 miles away, Shaffer said he felt bad for the family and wanted to help them out, so he closed up and headed on a journey to deliver the pizza.

Shaffer got to their house around 2:30 in the morning and got them their pizza, he also refused money for a hotel, Julie Morgan wrote, leaving right away to get back for work the next day.

"I am beyond overwhelmed and humbled by this act of genuine kindness. Dalton brought our family so much joy - and the best pizza in the world - at a really difficult time. While 'thank you' hardly seems adequate - from the bottom of my heart, thank you, Dalton from Steve's Pizza in Battle Creek, MI for making your epic middle of the night pizza delivery!" Julie Morgan wrote on Facebook, posting a photo of two slices of pizza.

Dalton said he didn't do it for any attention just felt like he needed to help the family out, he was also surprised when he saw the story making the rounds on Facebook.

Morgan's post had nearly 2,000 shares as of Wednesday afternoon.
