To the Editor:
A kind lady at Hanisch Bakery a few weeks ago surprised my friend and me at lunch.
We were having difficulty making up our minds and allowed the lady behind us to go first; she suggested some items and made the selection easier.
As we went to pay for our meals, we were told she made arrangements to cover our lunch. Surprised and amazed were the words for the moment.
We do not know her name, but her local company does local business and both her company and Hanisch support each other, while the employees are the lucky ones.
We want her to know her good deed was paid forward … four times. Each of us did something special for some person we did not know. Two additional people at Hanisch were given lunches, and my friend Kathy is donating two microwaves in perfect condition to two needy families in her community — those lucky people found a gift card in each microwave with her best wishes.
Paying something forward does great things, and it brings great joy. Thank you so much for our lunch and we will continue to surprise someone else in the future.
