Letter: Family grateful for generosity

We would like to thank the kind gentleman who paid for our meal. We were at Wendy’s on Blairs Ferry Road on Halloween evening. Being a single income family of seven, we don’t eat out often.

We noticed one man waiting in line behind our large group. Knowing it would take awhile to process our order with five children, we offered to let the man go ahead of us. After the man ordered, he then proceeded to give us $20 for our meal.

We were very surprised and grateful for his generosity. He mentioned that he was a schoolteacher. We really appreciate this teacher’s random act of kindness!
