Pam Brekke, was next in line to purchase a generator at Lowes home improvement store, one of many trying to prepare for Hurricane Irma.
The corporate office tried to prepare for the hurricane, by sending a supersize shipment of generators but fell short. Lowes’ Orlando (Florida) store received 218 generators early Thursday morning but was sold out within two hours. The staff barely had time to unload them.
Pam Brekke was next in line but sadly watched as the last generator was given to the customer before her. Pam had been trying to buy one for days with no luck. Watching the last generator leave Pam couldn’t help but cry. Brekke had a very serious situation at home, with hope fleeting, it was just too much for her.
As reported by Sunnyskyz.com
“Wiping away her tears, Pam sobbed “My father’s on oxygen, and I’m worried about this storm.”
The customer in front of her- who had purchased the last generator, Ramon Santiago, insisted she takes his. Pam, being so taken back from the man had to hug him.
“I’m very overwhelmed by that man,” Brekke told ABC News. “That gentleman was a great gentleman right there. God will bless that man.”
A quick embrace and just like that, the two turned around parted ways. Their moment may have been over, but Mr. Stantiago’s selfless deed may very well have changed the chances of at least one man’s survival through this storm. We commend you, Mr. Stantiago. The video of their brief embrace was captured in the video below.
We need more good people like this coming out into the open and showing the rest of us that there are still good in this world. Things seem bleak to so many people as of late, we really could use more of it.
