Generous gesture touches couple on anniversary

Published Oct 12, 2018 at 4:00pm

My husband and I lunched at China House on Saturday, Sept. 29. I mentioned to the owner that we were celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary, and apparently the couple at the next table overheard.

After they left the waiter told me the nice lady next to us had paid for our bill and wished us a happy anniversary. We were “flabbergasted.”

I hope that young woman reads the Sentinel and knows how touched and thankful we are for her kindness and generosity to two complete strangers. She gave this old couple much joy on their special day.
