Thank you for the toaster

This letter was sent to the Lions Bay School Principal’s office after the school had sponsored a luncheon for seniors. An elderly lady received a new radio at the lunch as a door prize and was writing to say thank you.

Dear Lions Bay School ,

    God bless you for the beautiful radio I won at your recent Senior Citizens luncheon.  I am 84 years old and live at the West Vancouver Home for the Aged.  All of my family has passed away.  I am all alone and I want to thank you for the kindness shown to a forgotten old lady.

    My roommate is 95 and has always had her own radio; but before I received one, she would never let me listen to hers, even when she was napping.

    The other day her radio fell off the nightstand and broke into a lot of pieces. It was awful and she was in tears.

    She asked if she could listen to mine, and I told her to fuck off.  Thank you for that opportunity.
