Paying It Backward At The Blaisdell

On the way to the Passion concert at Blaisdell Arena, we drove down Kapiolani to turn right into the parking lot. There were a few cars coming from the other direction trying to turn left into the lot, but no one was letting them in.

So I let someone go in front of me in hope of starting a trend. When I got to the booth, the parking attendant told me that the lady ahead of me had paid for my parking. I didn’t get a chance to thank her and would like to do so now. I hope she reads this. Thank you for your generosity.

Dear Pamela,

Our heartfelt thanks to an anonymous military angel from Wahiawa. My grandson Bronson lost his wallet at Ala Moana Center, and the angel found it and turned it in to First Hawaiian Bank. Gail from the bank called my grandson to come recover his wallet.

Besides serving our country, we appreciate the integrity and honesty. May you truly be blessed.

Jane Oda

Dear Pamela,

After playing poker with friends, we all decided to go to Burger King in Kaneohe. When we drove to the pay window, we were told the people in the car before us had already paid our bill. We couldn’t thank them because they were already gone. Whoever they are, please convey our APPLAUSE.

J. and H. Yoshimori

Dear Pamela,

I dropped my debit card upon exiting from my car in Manoa Shopping Center. Upon returning to my car, my card was on the top of the car’s trunk cover. I am very thankful for whomever picked up the card.

Emily Uyesaki

Dear Pamela,

On a windy Sunday afternoon, we were traveling on Harding Avenue when my car ran over a box. I turned on 8th Avenue and tried to pull it out but was unsuccessful. A gentleman in a yellow Volkswagen appeared and recommended I reverse my car. Great idea. Thank you for your thoughtfulness.

Nancy Gakiya

Dear Nancy, Emily, J. and H., Jane and Peter,

With life so full of curves in the road, aren’t we lucky there are kind-hearted people traveling the same route who take the time to make our journey smoother? May your anonymous angels receive the blessings you so generously bestow upon them.
