It was just before Christmas when Debbie realized that Reg, a regular customer, had not been in to the store for a while. Knowing that he was without family in the province, Debbie set out to find out what had happened. On Christmas Eve, Debbie discovered that Reg had fallen and would be in the hospital for an extended stay. Worried that he was alone, Debbie drove to the hospital, getting there just before visiting hours were over for the night. « As soon as he saw me, he had a huge smile on his face, » says Debbie. « I’ve never seen anyone so glad to see anybody. He talked my ear off for about an hour until the nurses kicked me out. » Once Debbie let everyone at the store know what had happened to Reg, her co-workers sent along his favourite dessert: strawberry shortcake. « It meant a lot to him, » says Debbie. « I felt so glad that I had gone to see him. »
