    How To Find A PenPal in 30 Years or LessMost that choose careers in healthcare know going in or learn very quickly that there will be patients that are not easily forgotten at the end of the shift.  They go home with them and sometimes, like an uninvited house guest, they hang around way...

    @Sarah (Sally) McCabe, this is a beautifully moving story. I'm so glad that you shared it with us. You brought tears to my eyes. It really goes to show how much a simple act of kindness can mean to one person; without us even realizing it at the time. I love that you sent this gentleman a card, and it is great to think that the art of actually writing a letter or a card is not lost. I still pen them from time to time to certain people, and it is something that i hope I never lose sight of. Thanks for sharing such a heart warming story.

    @Sarah (Sally) McCabe, this is wonderful story. In part, I think the "tradition" of sitting down and handwriting a note is lost on many in my generation (X) and perhaps even the Boomers, yet, it was commonplace for those of the WWII generation. I am an advocate for taking the few minutes to hand write thank-you's, a note or letter. The impact on the recipient can be tremendous, as you have witnessed by the experience you share. I love it and I am happy you found a pen pal! Bottom line, you made a difference in someones life (and I am sure many more). Well done Sally!

    @Sarah (Sally) McCabe, what a touching story!!! After working in healthcare myself for many years I remember so many patients similar to Peter that we would carry in our hearts for days or years to come. I had tears while reading this because you were obviously one of the kindest souls he'd encountered in a long time. I wonder if Peter had a tough and lonely life? Or maybe Peter lost those closest to him and he had been lonely for a long time. I'm sure those thoughts have crossed your mind and all I can say is we need more Sarah's in this world!! What a difference one gesture can make, even a gesture we had no idea would affect another in such a positive manner.
