LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: An act of kindness

An act of kindness

Dear Editor,

I just wanted to share an experience that reminded me how thoughtful and kind our citizens are.

After celebrating my 80th birthday, my husband being seriously injured and in the hospital for five weeks and our precious, four-legged little princess dying in my arms, my heart and mind were heavy. I thought a quick stop at Mesquite Pit for a sandwich would help.

Then the kind waitress came to my table, I thought to bring me my check. She brought me a surprise instead! She informed me that my check had been “taken care of.”

Surprised, I asked who would do that? The young lady said, “a family.”

Please know whoever you are, I sincerely thank you. You touched my heart and lifted my spirit. May God bless you and your family.

Thanks.

Glenda Perkins, Weatherford

Thanks for cards to Senior Circle members

Dear Editor,

On behalf of Weatherford Regional Medical Center Senior Circle I would like to thank the schools and churches listed below for doing a special community project for our Senior Circle members. The children colored and wrote a special message on the birthday cards to the Senior Circle members that were then mailed to them.

These cards bring a special smile to our members.

A special “thank you” to each teacher who works with me to make sure the cards are ready and each child does their best. Without the teachers involvement this project would not be possible.

Special thanks to Sue Schriber for designing our new cards. They went out this year and everyone loved them. You did a wonderful job. Thank you for offering to design new cards for us. You are very talented.

Thank you to Weatherford ISD elementary schools Austin, Crockett, Curtis, Ikard, Juan Seguin and Wright; private schools Victory Baptist Academy and Weatherford Christian School; and churches Lake Shore Baptist, North Side Baptist and Victory Baptist.
