WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Lynn Reed of Glasgow was having one of those Mondays.

Both her fiance and her mother were home sick. Reed was still recovering from an illness herself, and she had broken a lamp.

Then Reed went to the grocery store. After all her groceries had been scanned, she realized her wallet was missing. Reed finally broke down. She could barely talk as she tearfully phoned her fiance.

Then she felt a pat on her shoulder.

Reed says a woman insisted on paying for her groceries, which added up to $98. Reed says the woman wouldn’t give her full name so she could be repaid, simply saying: “Don’t you worry about it.”



Reed tells The News Journal (https://delonline.us/1CkTZ2u ) that she didn’t realize there were people like that left in the world.
