Post 3144 - A Neat Christmas Story

Like many of you, I was taken with the story last week of the retired postal worker who, in 1993, while volunteering his time as a Santa answering children's letters, received a letter from a little girl. Not just any letter: it was a letter from a 9 year old girl who wanted her parents to stop fighting and to remain together.  Here is the link to the story.

Turns out that the girl has grown up to be a radio person, working for CKBW in Bridgewater, in the newsroom. Veteran radio guy, and daily blog reader, Mike Richards, works with this woman, and filled in a couple more details for me. If further turns out that Mike is friends with this postal worker, a fellow named Tom Hurst. The guy was best man at Mike's wedding. And, over the years, they have discussed this story many times. Now, 22 years later, Candyce Sellars works at the same station Mike does, in many ways giving this uplifting story even more closure.

I love stories like this. Help me keep my Christmas spirit.

I am trying to get an up-to-date picture of Candyce Sellars. I am not FB friends with her, at least not yet. When I get one, I will update this blog post with that image.

I have something in my eye.

See you tomorrow.
