11/6/2013 7:31:00 AM LETTER: Good kids still exist in the world
We still have good kids in this country. On Halloween night my wife and I were at our grand daughters in Blythe. Our granddaughter said not many kids come by so we don't need to buy a lot of candy and so didn't. As luck would have it a lot of kids came by and we ran out of candy. Just as I was getting ready to go buy some more candy there was a knock at the door. It turned out to be several kids. A young girl was standing in front of the door and said " I hear you are out of candy" and reached into her candy sack and pulled out a very large hand full of candy put in our empty candy bowl, said here now you have some, smiled and walked away.
I hope she reads this. With that attitude she is going a long way in life. We just wanted to tell her she made our night and thanks for being such a thoughtful person. We wish we could have had more time to talk to here.

Thank you Jerry for your kind words. My sister and I were walking our children and nieces and nephews that night. The girl you are speaking about is our neice. I will make sure she reads this. I'm sure it will make her day. :)
