BROWNSVILLE, Texas (AP) - A cafeteria worker in Brownsville who for years made a point of being kind to a sometimes picky customer has received $50,000 from him.
Melina Salazar wondered why Walter "Buck" Swords stopped showing up last summer.
Salazar says Swords, 89, was a regular, wanting his food very hot and served a certain way.
Then Salazar noticed the man's July obituary in a newspaper.
Days before Christmas, Salazar learned that Swords had left her $50,000 and a 2000 model car.
Salazar says her advice to anyone in her line of work is -- smile and be nice.
