Letter: Random act of kindness caught couple by surprise in Roseburg store

Groceries were gift from others

On Jan. 7, we were having our groceries checked out when our checker (I think he was a floor manager) excused himself for a moment. When he came back, he had a big grin. We saw a lady and a young man in a U.S. Army camouflage uniform come up behind us.

“You have been chosen for a random act of kindness. My son wants to pay for your groceries; your checker told us about you.”

Disbelief, then tears, hugs and handshakes were exchanged. A young lady also in Army camo came up and was introduced as the youngest in the family.

Our heartfelt “thank you” goes to the mother for raising such caring children and to the young man and his sister for such a wonderful gift to us, and to our country for their service. Also, thank you to our wonderful checker!
