Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Pay-It-Forward Is My Life!


--by Migdalia Baerga-Buffler, posted Apr 6, 2006
It was refreshing to run into your website. I'm ALWAYS doing "acts of kindness" to make a difference in the lives of others -- I think it's my LIFE's Calling and Passion to be quite honest. I should invest in cardshop stocks as I spend LOTS of money buying cards for others. So this is a GREAT idea and I would love to Pay Forward. What do I need to do? You name it! That too is my motto -- Pay it Forward because in life --I believe, you "reap what you sow."

I walk by your office wanting to hear your voice and i think of the crazy times at work and outside of the job. I know you would not want me feeling sad but just know you are not forgotten and truly missed. Love you big sis

It was today, july 15, 2010, almost three years later to a tragic loss, that a coworker and mentor of mine told me the stories of her good friend, migdalia baerga-buffler, ak. a . Miggie. Not only did she sing of her praises, but she then led me to her obituary which was filled with beautiful remarks of the phenomenal woman she was. Thank you ms. Miggie! Thank you for being obedient to god and doing his work, so that other's lives could be better. Thank you for giving unselfishly in all that you did. Thank you for letting your light shine. And thank you for showing me, someone you never even knew, how important it is to be helpers of one another. I'm sure the crown of jewels god has given you for your good works is absolutely stunning!

I remember her as being a bright student, and for some reason she is only one of a few students that made an impression on me and i have remembered her after all these years! The world has lost a remarkable young woman. I am so sorry for her loss, but, i will always remember her vitality for life and her drive for excellence! Migdalia baerga buffler, i wish that i could have met the woman you had become! It is to her credit that she was able to make a difference in the world.

As one of her closest friends, I can attest to the fact that she not only meant the words that she posted, she did infact live her life by paying it forward. Migdalia, was a kind, loving, caring, gifted human person, who truly cared for thy neighbor. She gave of her self in any way she could, feeding the homeless, clothing drives, buying food for families with limited resources, etc., etc. She was and always will be my true hero! Miggie touched countless drives and it was an honor to share my life with her. I love you wysiwyg/ Miggie--until we meet again. I will never forget you.......
