Pizza, its simple ingredients of dough, sauce, cheese, and toppings is one of planet earth’s most loved foods. For Rich and Julie Morgan in Indianapolis, it was a specific Pizza from Steve’s Pizza in Battle Creek, MI that they both shared as something special. But, when cancer came back and left Rich Morgan in hospice care, plans to visit Steve’s Pizza, now three and a half hours away slipped through their fingertips as Rich was only given a certain amount of time to live, too weak to travel.
But, as per the story Julie Morgan shared on Facebook earlier this week (Oct. 16,2018) a manager at Steve’s Pizza decided to take matters into his own hands and make good on a trip that Rich and Julie Morgan couldn’t make themselves.

The local newspaper, the Battle Creek Enquirer, reached out to this Dalton, the manager that burned his candle at both ends to make this trip possible. In a short and humble interview, they found out that Dalton wanted to make his good deed something he kept to himself, which speaks volumes of the type of man he is.
“I wasn’t going to tell anyone about it,” Dalton said. “I didn’t even tell my uncle or anything when I left for Indiana.”‘
“I took a couple 5-hour Energys.I had to, I was super tired, but I made it and that’s what counts. It was worth it. I’m glad I did that.”
