■Why is Concord like heaven? It’s full of angels and good, that make great samaritans! Just look at Kathryn and “Mr X” inviting folks to Thanksgiving Dinner who had no place to go. Kathryn returned to our mailbox a receipt for work on the car found near Rollins Park during the holiday and as a terrific person, brought it to our house. Enter Saint X. He drove the jacket over to our house, intact and with all the contents and since no one answered, left it in a safe place. What a wonderful human being! We can’t forget, SoulaMaloutas, who, in her PJs went to look in the driveway for us, found the returned jacket and took it home until our return. Who are you Kathryn and Saint X? We would love to thank you properly.

■Michael Mercier would like to thank Terrence Jefferson for returning a wallet with a substantial amount of cash Mercier’s brother.

■Chagurimsameach! Hanukkah is a reminder that it’s up to each of us to be a light in the darkness, and even a little light can go a long way.”
