Letter to the Editor: A Heartfelt Thank You!
To the Good Samaritan at Niles Community Park who found my car key.
I was walking my dog Sunday at the park, apparently not knowing I had lost my car key from around my neck until after we finished the walk and headed back to the car. After the initial sense of doom and frustration when I discovered I did not have the key, I felt a profound sense of gratefulness seconds later when you approached and asked if the key you found on the trail was mine.
My relief was so overwhelming that I completely forgot to ask your name. I hope you can forgive that. I did not see you when I drove out of the parking lot, and honestly do not know what I would have done if you had not found the key. I'm not sure I would have even known where to look.
If you see this in print, I hope you realize just what a wonderful kindness you did for a stranger. I sincerely hope I have the opportunity to repay this kindness to you.
Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart; may your kindness to me multiply for you many times over.
