Letter: Kind gesture by total stranger

This joyous season it would be so nice if through a random act of kindness, the residents of Grand Forks could pay it forward.

Recently I was buying an “Ugly Christmas Sweater” to cheer up my wife, who came home from three days in Kelowna with the flu.

I realized that I had brought no cash, and there was no Interact available, so I was on my way to the bank to get some money. I was no sooner out the door, when I was called back. The beautiful young lady next in line had paid for sweater, and handed it to me. This was a true “Pay It Forward,” a kind gesture by a total stranger that I will pass on.

This joyous season it would be so nice if through a random act of kindness, the residents of Grand Forks could pay it forward when an opportunity presented itself.

So, to the kind young lady, you know who you are, my wife and I thank you. You made my sick wife’s day. What a happy way to start the Christmas season.

Seasons greetings to all.

– R. Spragg, Grand Forks
