    Wonderful story. Thanks for bringing it to our atetntion. Isn’t amazing how small the world is and how it may take years but things really do go full circle. It’s also a good reminder that sometimes it’s the smallest things we do (we may even forget) that can have a huge impact. Whether it be an act of kindness..but also remember that mean act don’t go forgotten either. is true we lead by example.
