Virginia Kjer: A special Christmas meal

January 3, 2014 

The day after Christmas, my mom and I were returning from Christmas in Auburn. When we arrived back in Riverbank, we decided to stop at Perko’s for a bite to eat. While we were, there the waitress came up and indicated the man who had been across from us and who was by himself had paid for our meal. I have heard of people doing this but had never experienced it. What a wonderful after-Christmas surprise. I’m don’t know if he will see this letter, but I thank him. He made our day very special.
