CHEERS to the angel at Kroger. I was checking my groceries out at the Kroger store on Maplecrest Road. It is hard as I am 82 years old.

A woman was in front of me checking out. She had an item I had forgotten. She said, “Run back and get the item. I will watch your cart for you.” She had a beautiful smile, dark hair, olive skin, and a red coat.

I hurried back and noticed my cart was gone. I looked around the register, and there the woman in the red coat was with my cart. She waved and said, “Come on, I paid for your items. I said, “No stay there. I will pay you.” She left my cart, smiled and said, “Merry Christmas” as she walked out the door.

I was only one or two minutes behind her. I looked and looked she was gone. Where did she go? I put my item in the car and went up and down the parking lot for 10 minutes thinking maybe she parked far away. No, she just disappeared.

I started to cry because the money I was to spend on my food items was the last I had for the month. Now I have enough to last me to the end of the month. Was she real? Was she an angel?

CHEERS to retiring Journal Gazette carrier Frank Harger. Thanks for the years of reliable delivery. Best to you in your retirement.


While shopping at Glenbrook Square, I inadvertently misplaced a gift I had purchased earlier that day. After retracing my steps and no luck in finding my purchase, I contacted the mall office and a few of the stores I had shopped in.

I left my name and phone number at each place in case my merchandise was found.

Since I have not heard from the mall, I assume someone has taken my gift, which was for my husband, for themselves. JEERS and bah humbug to the person who took the gift. I just feel truly disappointed in my fellow man. I am a bit naïve, but I sincerely thought my gift would be found and returned.
