Sometimes you hear a story that just makes you say, “Wow.”

Monday night was a rough night for Lindsay Pualoa of Ashburn. Her toddler, AJ, was under the weather and both mom and son were up most of the night. Things weren’t much better when the sun came up.

“He was still a hot mess (in the) morning so I cancelled an annual furnace check I had scheduled with our HVAC company,” Lindsay wrote on Facebook. “I just apologized for the late notice, said I had a sick kid at home, and didn’t think much more about it. Three hours later, my doorbell rings and there is a florist at my door. The (HVAC) company sent flowers with a note saying they hoped our child was feeling better soon. I’m floored! I’ve never had something like this happen before.”

Flowers for the sick kid of a customer that cancelled last minute. That is above and beyond. We don’t know anything about this company, but someone in the public relations department at AllTech Services in Sterling gets a gold star for that sweet gesture.
