Letter: Stranger’s kindness was wonderful birthday gift

Stranger’s kindness was wonderful birthday gift

With all the sad news we hear every day of violence in the world, it’s nice to hear about acts of kindness. My husband and I took our dear friends out for breakfast for a little celebration for his 90th birthday. We enjoyed a wonderful meal at a restaurant in Kenmore.

When it came time to pay the check, our server said that it was paid for “anonymously.” She said a gentleman overheard us talking about our friend’s 90th birthday and wanted to share in a remarkable, long life by paying our check. We are so grateful to the total stranger sharing our joy. You have heard, “pay it forward”? Well, we will.
