Letter: The world needs more Garys with a ‘G’

By Letter to the Editor on May 1, 2021.

Dear editor,

An open letter to Gary with a “G.”

I am still bewildered but also grateful for what you did on Thursday evening, April 8, at Walmart.

I am 88 years old, and never before has anyone ever paid for my purchases.

I do not know you, and am still wondering why you chose to do this.

When I asked your name you would only give me “Gary with a G.”

I told you that I would pay it forward. So, I went to the Bow Island town office and made a monetary donation to the local food bank. I said it was paid by Carol and “Gary with a G.”

Someday I may even get the hug you couldn’t give because of COVID rules.

The world would be a better place if there were more people like you.


“Carol with a C”
