30th I went to the Northwood Hannaford to pick up a few things. I
wrote a check at the Pharmacy but had left my ID in my car. I have
trouble walking, but told the Pharmacy Technician I would be right
back. The woman behind me in line stepped forward to pay for my
purchases. I objected, saying it was not a problem, that I could go
to my car and return, but she insisted and would not take no for an
answer. I repeatedly asked her for her name and address to reimburse
her, but she declined to give it to me. She was a kind stranger who
will never be forgotten. Many thanks.
