Seattle Times letters to the editor

December 1, 2013 at 7:04 AM

Jack MacDonald’s incredible gift

May we all follow his example of generosity

What a beautiful story, even more because of the generosity of this wonderfully shy man [“Frugal, shy man left ‘huge surprise,’” page one, Nov. 27].

He worked hard and dedicated his entire life’s work. He looked into the future to ensure that his work would help others, especially needy children who aren’t able to help themselves.

In this day and age, there are very few dedicated people who don’t seek fame or notoriety. These few people merely do their daily work and never seek recognition for what they have done.

This was a grand story, especially at this time of year, and we should all give thanks to him, learn from his work and reach out to those who are in need.

We should also give thanks to his stepdaughter, Regen Dennis. She is truly her mother’s daughter as she stood by him after her mother’s death and is going by his wishes on his financial estate. My prayers of thanks go out to her.

— Virginia Carpenter, Tulalip
