Usually, eBay sellers congregate on Facebook to discuss lost packages, eBay site rules, or difficult customers. Yesterday, one eBay seller posted a heartfelt letter from a buyer thanking her for selling her husband a bottle of Mary Kay Tamerisk cologne. The woman's husband recently passed away, but the buyer wanted the seller to know how much her service and the product was appreciated during a difficult time.
The letter is as follows:
"Dear Ms. Schroeder,
My husband Edward ordered a bottle of Tamerish cologne from you several months ago. You sent a very nice message along with it. I gave him is first bottle several years ago and he loved it.
He was diagnosed with terminal cancer 2 years ago and died May 8. he was so happy to get your letter and the Tamerisk cologne. He was so afraid of smelling sick when I took him each week for is chemo treatments.
When he ran out and found out that it had been discontinued, I found you on the computer. He was so happy when we were able to find someplace to get it. He died about a month after receiving your package. He was a real man! He was 6'7' and really good-looking. He could do almost anything! We were married 39 years. Thank you so much!"
Many sell discontinued items, especially cologne. This letter just goes to show that the little things in life can matter so much to customers. You never know when a seemingly insignificant and simple item can bring joy and happiness to another person.
