Some good deeds are timeless.
Here’s a story we heard that happened last month. That might make it seem too old to re-tell, but the message and sentiment is actually quite fitting for this time of year, so we are sharing.
Yesterday, November 15, the most amazing thing happened. My husband Dick and I stopped at the Bedford Diner for dinner after the support meeting at his day care Center. He suffers from Alzheimer’s disease and attends day care at My Second Home in Mount Kisco. He of course, had his WW2 Veteran hat on and I didn’t bother to tell him to take it off. Well, a state trooper came over to thank him or his service, which was really nice, and Dick didn’t really understand what he was being thanked for, but he thanked him for thanking him and we went on with dinner. I got up to pay the bill, and it had been taken care of…. the trooper who came over to us, paid for our dinner… Well, I was overwhelmed. What a really nice thing to do for an ‘old soldier’. Special Thank you to that trooper for his kindness. It made my husband’s day.
I thought this might be something that others would be interested in hearing about. The kindness and patriotism of strangers is amazing. We sometimes think the worse of people, but something like this proves us wrong. Thank you, Christine Ruggieri, Somers, N. Y.
