As I read the Globe and Mail's reporting about the deaths of a Jewish couple in their Florida winter home, I couldn't help but marvel at the acts of kindness the couple performed including the incident below, retold by Ms. Gladman, an acquaintance.
Alluding to Mr. Pichosky’s habit of getting his wife flowers every week, Ms. Gladman recalled one occasion when the female cashier said wistfully, “How lovely. Nobody’s ever bought me flowers.”
Mr. Pichosky got a second bouquet and offered it to the cashier.
“I mean, who does that? Who does that? Someone who has a heart and is a kind, caring person,” Ms. Gladman said.
