Good will is not dead in Rotterdam

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionI’m so happy that good will is not dead. For many years my neighbor has cleaned the property for me and I’m grateful. While there was much traffic on my street due to a local fire, much to my amazement one young gentleman parked his car, got out and offered to finish shoveling. When I asked his name, he said “Chris,” which was my dad’s name, and that he owned Cusato’s Pizzeria on Altamont Avenue.While he finished shoveling, I spoke with his wife and daughter who were waiting patiently in the car and thanked them for their patience and Christmas kindness.He absolutely refused any payment and offered to send help if I would just call him and said I reminded him of his “nonna” (grandma).All I could offer were my grateful prayers and “Merry Christmas.” Truly, the spirit of Christmas giving goes on in this young business man of Rotterdam.
