A Guitar and a Kind Heart

Cherryfield, ME — The Mission’s June 6 Facebook post opened with: ‘Guitar Lost in House Fire, Seeking Replacement.’ Marilyn Nickson, Downeast Campus Community Coordinator, wondered if someone had “a guitar out there in good condition that might find a home” with an 80-year old woman who “lost everything some time ago in a house fire,” including her “prize possession” guitar.

Well, an secret angel with a guitar and a kind heart had a guitar for the woman we now know is Nancy.

Marilyn Nickson reconnected with Nancy a few days ago. “She was so happy! She’s been playing [guitar] since she was 15, she tells me. She wanted to thank the donor,” Marilyn said in an email accompanying this photo.

Thank you, as well, on behalf of Maine Seacoast Mission.
