Kindness Abounds in Our Town – A Heartfelt Thank You to Those Who Helped Injured Friend

To the Editor:

A friend visiting from out of town helped take recycling to the curb last week. Upon wrestling with the cans, he tripped and tumbled into the street. Within seconds, Jefferson Road traffic came to a standstill and people came running out of every car to help us older people. They were wonderfully caring, got Bob up and checked him for injury, helped us back into the house and saw that he was comfortable. They even finished taking out the recycling! X-rays later proved that Bob had cracked two ribs in his back; he has been on medication for pain, but is now back home and doing well.

We both extend a heartfelt thank you to the many who helped!
