Went the ex­tra mile

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

Most of the time when I think I should write a let­ter to the ed­i­tor, it is in a neg­a­tive mode. To­day, how­ever, is a horse of a dif­fer­ent color.

This to point out a very good oc­cur­rence: On the 22nd of Jan­uary I found in the day’s post a Christ­mas card from a long-lost cousin. We had no con­tact for more than 25 years. She called an­other long-lost cousin and got an ad­dress for me and turned the card over to the USPS for de­liv­ery to me. Noth­ing un­usual as yet; how­ever, the ad­dress on the card was last my cor­rect ad­dress in April 1994.

Yet less than a month af­ter Christ­mas, the USPS car­rier placed the card in my mail­box.

A big hooray for the mail car­rier and the great ser­vice. I have re­con­nected with my cousin and greatly ap­pre­ci­ate the ex­tra mile the USPS gave. Thank you.
