My Heart Feels Light Today

I set up a web page on a crowd funding site to raise money for him. At the same time, I contacted his current attorney to let her know, so there would be no appearance of impropriety on my part. People from all over the country donated and left him beautiful messages, including my dad, who is also a senior citizen.
Today I finally closed down the account. I mailed a check and a letter to him along with the printed pages of the messages left to him by the donors. I have never met him, and likely never will, but I feel so moved by his story and honored to have helped him. Here is his picture from the news source. His attorney said he is going to be so touched. I hope so. I want him to know that complete strangers care about him.
