Penticton Western News letters to the editor.

Letter: A thank you to Natalie

How does one respond to such gentility and true kindness?

A thank you to Natalie

An unexpected, delightful encounter with ‘Natalie’ proved to me, once again, the world does contain wonderfully gracious people.

Recently, I was struggling to enter a large grocery store (I have mobility issues) when, out of the blue, I heard a voice say to me, here, let me help you. With those words Natalie took my arm and guided me to the area of the store to which I had been heading. She left me for a few moments to conduct her own business and returned shortly to escort me from the building.

In her arms she carried some lovely blooms of spring. With great subtlety, she handed me one pot of the flowers and said these are for you. It has been a pleasure to meet you.

How does one respond to such gentility and true kindness?

With humble appreciation,

Elizabeth Lynch
