Senior citizens send love note to their postman

The residents of the Knickerbocker Apartments in Bay Village, with a love note to their postman, signed by all.

Every once in a while you run across someone who does their job so well, and with such exuberance, that you find yourself asking, "How did I get so lucky as to have this individual enter my life"? Such is the case with postal carrier Tom Mrvetz!

Since the very first day he walked through the doors of the Knickerbocker Apartments, the residents have been overwhelmed by his kindness and warm friendship.

Tom is quick with a smile, always has a funny joke at the ready, and seems to go out of his way to spread joy to all he comes in contact with. It is not uncommon for residents to wait in the lobby just to have a quick interaction with him.

With more than 168 apartments and regular changes in names and addresses, Tom is able to adjust with flawless precision and goes out of his way to follow through with the smallest of details in order to make sure service is uninterrupted and important information is delivered without error. This is very important when the correct delivery of some mail makes all the difference with regard to purchasing vital medicine or groceries.

As a gesture of gratitude for all Tom has done, the residents held a small reception in his honor to personally thank this generous, thoughtful, compassionate and delightful mail carrier for delivering his brand of awesome every time he walks in the door!
