Via Fox News:
A simple act of kindness by a woman at a grocery store in Florida over the weekend had a World War II veteran gushing he received the “best Christmas present” ever.
George Seney Jr. told FOX35 Orlando he was in line at a Publix in New Smyrna Beach when the woman came over to him and thanked him for his service.
“The lady on the end of the line noticed I was a World War II veteran so she comes over and thanks me for my service and gave me a big hug and said, ‘I want you to have a Merry Christmas,’ and she put something in my hand,” he said.
Seney Jr., who served in the Coast Guard during the war, realized when he looked down at his hand the woman handed him $50.
“I rolled it up and I went back to the lady, I said, ‘You made a mistake, that’s too much money.’ She says, ‘No, I want you to have a Merry Christmas,’” he told FOX35. “After I started thinking about it, I said, ‘What a gesture.’”
