I waited by his truck for over thirty minutes. His gray slacks were cut off at the knees and were the same color as his bushy beard. He took his time doing his job, but he did it well and with a smile on his face. Apart from that, he is a mystery. I didn't catch his name or hear his wonderful life story. But he was nice enough to stop and let me take his portrait before he hoped back into his United States Postal Service truck and went on his way. I wish you the best, kind sir. You are the kindest letter carrier I've ever met.
God bless.
