More on strangers

Old friend Larry V. Landry shared a "kindness of stranger" with me via e-mail.

He, too, lost his cell phone, just as I did. And, just as mine was, his was rescued by a kind stranger.

Landry apparently dropped his on a parking lot after a grandchild’s soccer game.

In a letter to the stranger who found and returned it, Landry thanked him for tracking down the owner by checking his phone list and name.

"There are not many people today who would take that kind of care. In fact, there are many more who would have used the phone as much as possible until I had it turned off," he wrote.

"To be honest, the phone only cost me $1 to replace. But can you imagine the time I would have to have spent putting in all of those names and numbers," he added.

Does anyone else have a "kindness of strangers" to share?
