Letter: Surprise gift brings joy to Richland widow

September 12, 2013 

I would like to send a very special thank you to the person who purchased a sheepskin rug for me at Costco. I was looking at the rugs and talking to a woman. About 10 minutes later a clerk brought me over a rug, with a receipt for $124.32. What an unexpected and lovely surprise!

I love my new rug and will treasure it forever. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I am an 82-year-old woman, widowed in March, and this thoughtfulness meant the world to me. It's the nicest surprise I've ever received!
