There is something nice about getting a thank you letter from someone we know. It typically happens when we do something nice for them and they want to show their appreciation. Sure, we are going to get those letters after we send a wedding gift or some other type of gift to mark an occasion but some of the best thank you notes come when we don’t expect them. The senior in this story sent a thank you letter and it came out of the blue. When they read it, they couldn’t help but snicker.
This letter was sent to the Lions Bay School Principal’s office in West Vancouver after the school had sponsored a luncheon for seniors. An elderly lady received a new radio at the lunch as a door raffle prize and was writing to say thank you.
Dear Lions Bay School :
God bless you for the beautiful radio I won at your recent Senior Citizens luncheon.
I am 87 years old and live at the West Vancouver Home for the Aged. All of my family has passed away so I am all alone.
I want to thank you for the kindness you have shown to a forgotten old lady…
My roommate is 95 and has always had her own radio. She would never let me listen to it.
She said it belonged to her long-dead husband, and understandably, wanted to keep it safe.
The other day her radio fell off the nightstand and broke into a dozen pieces.
It was awful and she was in tears. She asked if she could listen to mine, and I was overjoyed that I could tell her to f**k off.
Thank you for that wonderful opportunity. God bless you all.
