Goodness In People

Dear Pamela,

We were at Zippy’s Waikiki when Lauren, our waitress, informed us that our check was taken care of.

What a surprise!

Whoever you are, we wish you good blessings and happiness always!

Tom and Sue Murakami

Hi Pamela,

My son lost his wallet on the way home from school. His whole life was in that wallet.

We came home only to find his wallet under the mat at our front door. I looked inside and nothing was touched.


I want to thank this individual. I wish I knew who you are. God bless you for being you.

Barbara Miller

Dear Pamela,

My sincerest thanks to Jerry, who let me use his cell phone when my battery went out at Queen’s hospital. Many, many thanks.

Alice Ohtani

Dear Pamela,

My car was giving me trouble, so I drove to Aiea and had to ask a lady if she knew where Mitsubishi was. She said to follow her car and she would lead me there.

Unfortunately, at a red light, my car died. She went on, not knowing I was stuck.

A hundred cars went by, but no one stopped to help until a young couple with a child and dog in a black sedan pulled over.

I do not know their names, but I’m going to buy a big bowl of flowers and put it in front of the King Kamehameha statue.

Richard Omori

Aloha Pamela,
