A gift she'll never forget

February 16, 2009 6:01:17 AM PST
It was one of those random acts of kindness.

Nicole St. Onge says a perfect stranger paid her $325 car repair bill on Valentine's Day.

She had been explaining to her mechanic it would take her a month to save that kind of money with her husband out of work.

At first she refused when the stranger offered to pick up her tab.

Then she started crying when the stranger insisted.

He didn't tell St. Onge his last name.

But the New Hampshire Sunday News tracked him down.

He's Paul LeBlanc, president of Southern New Hampshire University.

He says his act of kindness did more for him than it did for her.
