Paying it forward
On Friday, Dec. 18, 2009, as I backed my pickup truck out of my parking space at the Crystal River Mall, a lady motioned for me to stop. She then handed me a Walmart gift card, marked from Santa, for $50, wishing me “Merry Christmas.” I barely got out a thank-you as she walked away.
This letter is to let her know what I did with her gift. I paid it out. The nice lady at Walmart converted it into five $10 gift cards, which have been passed on to people who could use it, people unknown to me.
