Dear Reyer School:
God bless you for the beautiful radio I
won at your recent senior citizen's luncheon. I'm 94 years old and
live at the Memphis County Home for the Aged.
My family has long since passed away and I
rarely have visitors. As a result, I have very limited contact
with the outside world. This makes your gift especially welcome.
My roommate, Maggie Cook, has had her own
radio for as long as I've known her. She listens to it all the
time, though usually with an earplug or with the volume so low, I
can't hear it. For some reason, she has never wanted to share it.
Last Sunday morning, while listening to
her morning gospel programs, she accidentally knocked her radio
off its shelf. It smashed into many pieces, and caused her to cry.
It was so sad. Fortunately, I had my new radio. Knowing this,
Maggie asked if she could listen to mine. I told her to pound sand
God bless you for your kindness to an old,
Sincerely, Edna Johnson
