Letter: Kindness on our anniversary that will never be forgotten


The evening did not start out very well.

Rather than a special dinner for our 56th wedding anniversary, we decided to eat locally so we could be out on the deck.

We arrived at the restaurant at the same time as a group of six people, so we moved to the end of the outdoor deck for shade.

The other group was served immediately, but we sat for 20 minutes before getting a menu.

I finally walked over to the wait person and told her we needed menus. She sent out another wait person and the rest of our meal went well.

When my husband went to pay the bill, he was told that it was taken care of. We knew no one out there.

As we passed the group of six diners, they wished us a “Happy Anniversary.”

We asked if they had paid the bill. They said “no” at first, but then, admitted they did.

These were strangers and we would just like to thank them very much for such a kind gesture.

It is one anniversary we will never forget.
