Thanks for your kindess

Gerry Cox, Sun Valley

Thank you kind Samaritan. * ’d like to thank a kind young gentleman standing behind me in the queue – I was being attended to at the teller, when I remarked to him, that the Willow mug he had on the counter , took me back years ago to a tea service my late mother had, and told him how popular that pattern was.

He offered me the mug, and I touched him on the arm, thanking him for his kindness but I would be back in the morning to get a few items to make for a family supper.

The young gentleman , as the teller opened my plastic bag, gently put it in my packet, telling the teller he was just fetching another and that he was paying for three. I thanked him sincerely, but forgot to ask his name. I hope he reads his Echo as his kindness to a 79-year-old granny touched me.

Thank you again.
