Ernest Ruckert: Thankful for ‘angel’

Thankful for ‘angel’

After a very stressful day, we arrived at RDU airport from the Midwest.

My wife and I are elderly, and in all the confusion I lost my wallet at the airport. We discovered the loss after we arrived at our parking area. Talk about 100 percent anxiety!

We were driven back to the airport. As we approached the entrance, my wife said to a guard, “My husband lost his wallet.” He replied, “I think one has been found.”

Sure enough, at the information desk, they had it! A lady found it and turned it over to a security guard. They, and we, have no idea who the wonderful lady was. I thank her from the bottom of my heart for all the anguish she spared us! She was our Christmas angel!
