Grateful to those who paid for dinner

Thanks to the persons who paid for me and my wife’s dinner at the Applebee’s restaurant on May 26. We had just treated our guests for a deed they had done for us and you repaid our deed so soon. We will repay your kindness with a good deed soon.

Thanks again from a 90-year-old World War II veteran who survived five close calls when crossing Germany under Gen. George Patton’s 3rd army in the 89th infantry division. I am also blessed for 65-year marriage, four children, 10 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren.
