LETTERS: A lesson in good will

To the editor:

On Friday, December 9, I stopped at the Hannaford grocery store, in South China, at about 12:30 p.m. to pick up a few groceries. When I came out of the store, to put my groceries in my car, I was met by a gentleman and his son. The son came up to me and gave me what I naturally thought was a Christmas card. I thanked him, and his dad graciously put my groceries in the trunk of my vehicle.

When I got home and put my groceries away, I thought, ‘I’ll go sit down and read my card.’ Low and behold, when I opened the envelope, there as no card. There was a gift certificate to Hannaford! I could not believe my eyes – a perfect stranger giving me a gift card. I would like very much to thank both the dad and this young man! What a lesson in good will.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart to both of you! It was appreciated more than you know.

God bless and a very Happy New Year to both!

Your mystery Hannaford lady
