Anony­mous man pay­ing for din­ners

Windsor Star - - OPINION -

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.
