“I Won’t Forget You”

In June 2006, Paddy Keogh of Darwen Funeral Services in Darwen, England, stopped into a store to buy a Jim Reeves CD containing the songs “I Won’t Forget You” and “You’re the Only Good Thing (That’s Happened To Me).” Unfortunately, the CD was more expensive than he had thought it would be and he did not have enough money to pay for it. Also unfortunately, the funeral was starting very soon. Fortunately, a woman gave him the money to buy the CD. Mr. Krogh said, “I understood that the music we needed was going to be £6.99 so I only had a £10 note, but it turned out to be £16. The shop understandably didn’t want to let the CD go without the correct money because they didn’t know who I was. This lady just put the money into my hand and said she couldn’t have lived with herself if she thought a family were having a funeral for their loved one and couldn’t listen to that special piece of music. She had overheard the conversation and knew what a dilemma I was in with the funeral only being an hour away. It just shows that there are good people out there. I asked her name, but she wouldn’t give it and said this was just her good deed for the day.”
