“Beautiful, thoughtful expression of love” brings couple to tears

Dear Editor:

As most of Rimbey knows, we are among those targeted by Christmas vandalism.

Some decorations were damaged (my husband did a repair job on them) and our five-foot-high Santa was stolen and destroyed. It’s a sick mind that finds joy in such an act and my heart goes out to all of you who have had their yards vandalized. As well, kudos to the Rimbey RCMP for their response and work towards finding who is responsible for these acts.

Recently, our doorbell rang but there was no one there when we opened the door, however you can imagine our surprise when standing on the deck was a large gift and a beautiful card addressed to us signed only: “Love, the Santas of Rimbey.”

The gift was a six-foot-high Santa Claus.

What a beautiful, thoughtful expression of love; thank you so much for your kindness. It brought tears to our eyes and joy to our hearts. We don’t know who you are, but be assured that every Christmas when we put our Santa up, we’ll be thinking of you, the Santas of Rimbey and hope for you the warmest wishes for a very Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous 2010.

See Rimbey, there really is a Santa Claus.

God bless everyone.

Jim and Louise Donaldson,
