Random Act of Kindness
In the December 15 issue of The Grapevine we posted a memorial to our gone girl. On December 24, there was a knock at our darkened front door. I could only make out a silhouette of someone standing there. I opened to find a total stranger, a middle aged woman with short gray hair and a tender smile holding forth an envelope. She said “I read about the passing of your Sophie”, as she handed me a sympathy card signed “Linda and Woody” (her and her Dog – no last name, no contacts) turning a very sad day into a joyous occasion for the love of Dog.
No beer, no booze, no drug, no dream, no wish, no prayer could ever have done as much. May we meet again in sunshine.
