icture this: You’ve been given a terminal diagnosis and have limited time left on earth. What would you do with your time? Would you have the emotional ability to think beyond yourself and your own mortality?
One woman in Aurburn, Maine, was reportedly faced with these very questions. And she made a stunning and monumentally-inspiring decision. And now shes’ being called the “back to school angel” after generously paying off 16 layaway orders for struggling families at a local Kmart store.
“She was here about 15 minutes. She paid off 16 the layaways in cash, about $3,000,” store manager Joyce Beane told WCSH-TV. “Then she said, ‘I’m not feeling well. I need to leave.’”
The mystery woman apparently told Kmart staff members that she was extremely ill. She apparently paid off the accounts in an effort to do something good with her life before she died. Considering that the families who had layaway accounts were behind in their payments, her kind gesture was much appreciated.
