JACKSONVILLE, Fla. —

He said he asked for the customer name, thinking she wanted to pay for a specific person.

DeClemente said she replied no, that she wanted to anonymously pay for a cake.

"She then started to tear up and tell me that she had a stillborn child a year ago and in tribute to him she wanted to pay for someone else's cake," he wrote on Facebook. "I went to the cake order drawer and found this one. She told me thank you and appreciated that I let her do this."
