Anonymous man paying for dinners
I am writing this letter on behalf of four longtime friends, over 65 years to be exact, and the dear and patient husband of one of those friends. For many years, the five of us have met each month to play a hot game of five-handed pepper, followed by dinner at a local restaurant. Recently, we met as usual and went to Hurricanes in Olde Sandwich Town to have our dinner and celebrate the 93rd birthday of one of our friends.
We ordered our meals and, as we began to eat, a waitress came to our table and told us that a gentleman who had just left the restaurant had paid for our meals and, although she admitted to knowing him, said he wished to remain anonymous. Naturally we were deeply touched and wondered how we could thank him. We agreed that we could only “pay it forward,” which we most certainly will do. I know we all have room on our prayer list for “Anonymous.” Thank you for your kind gesture.
