A delightful story of human kindness, especially for anyone who has ever lost a beloved grandfather or grandmother
I lost this amazing man almost two years ago, he was my person; my grandfather and one of the best people I will ever have the privilege of knowing.
Try to imagine the best hug you’ve ever had. A hug that makes you feel safe, warm, and peaceful. That was him.
His favorite thing in the entire world was to go and eat the local restaurant’s lasagne which they served in a plain, white, oval dish.
I’d been patiently waiting for them to reopen due to COVID, when I received the devastating news that they were closing their doors for good.
I was beside myself. I’d never have a piece of him with me again. I reached out to the restaurant asking to purchase a dish and amazingly they sent me several, free of charge.
"A stranger opened their heart and filled mine."
I couldn’t believe it. A stranger opened their heart and filled mine. Their kindness was amazing. The world we live in offers little kindness and love and sometimes it can be hard to see the good. That was a good day.
Be someone’s lasagna dish. Offer kindness and love, you won’t regret it... I promise.

Touching story of human kindness. On a bus from Phoenix to LA a woman hands over her last forty dollars. But that wasn't the end of her story...
