You should be very proud. It's great that you bought her the back pack. She definitely deserves to have it paid forward. Things like this touch others hearts more than most people realize. Especially after the events of yesterday. What a great kid. Keep it up dad you and mom are doing a great job in raising this child from the sounds of it.
It makes me want to pick up something for her to send out for Christmas. A great way to explain pay it forward and how stories like this touch the hearts of people who read about this kind act on a message board. I am on the road all week next week and will most likely not have the time to get something out. If anyone wants to do so I would be happy to donate to someone closer to ilovethelakings that could get it there in time for Christmas.
But his name is
James Cortellessa, retired air force, loving grandfather, father and husband,
and the best smartass around. RIP PAPAJIM
