Romano, so kind, so honest

  • Print

I had an awesome thing happen to me while shopping downtown with my daughter.

I parked in The Bay parkade about 3:30 p.m. and while crossing the street, I guess I dropped my iPhone4S in the snow. I didn’t even notice.

We went into one of the bridal stores as we were shopping for a grad dress. About two hours later, my son called my daughter’s phone and told us that some guy answered my phone when he had called. His name was Romano, and he lived at Siloam Mission. He told my son that he had found my I phone in a snow bank across from The Bay and that I could pick it up any time before 8 p.m. at 300 Princess Street.

My daughter and I proceeded to drive to Siloam Mission, and he was waiting outside for us. He gave us the phone, I thanked him very much and he didn’t even ask for a reward. He just wanted to get the phone back to its owner.

I was so very impressed with this man.

I want to give a big shoutout to Romano and his friends at Siloam Mission for being so honest and kind and returning my phone to me. I wish them all good health and tons of happiness.

Thank you.

P.S. I wish that Tim Horton’s would bring free coffee and donuts for the residents of Siloam Mission this holiday season.
