A heart warming tale

It's not often I'm moved to reproduce something received from a friend ...
This letter was sent to the Elton High School Head Master's office in
London after the school had sponsored a luncheon for Pensioners. 
An elderly lady had received a new radio at the lunch as a door raffle prize and was writing to say thank you. 
This story is a credit to all humankind. 

Dear Sir
God bless you for the beautiful radio I won at your recent Senior Citizens luncheon.
I am 87 years old and live at the local Home for the Aged...
All of my family has passed away so I am all alone.
I want to thank you for the kindness you have shown to a forgotten old lady.
My room-mate is 95 and has always had her own radio;
but she would never let me listen to it.
She said it belonged to her long dead husband, and understandably, wanted to keep it safe.
The other day her radio fell off the nightstand and broke into a dozen pieces.
It was awful and she was in tears. She asked if she could listen to mine, and I was overjoyed that I could tell her to f$*k off.
Thank you for that wonderful opportunity.
God bless you all.
