This is my first time ever in living 44 years in Jefferson County to a “Letter to the Editor” but I experienced an act of real small-town kindness that I just had to write to you about.
Over the last three-plus years my husband has suffered two strokes and just this past weekend a seizure that required his third helicopter ride to Seattle. After a couple days at Harborview we brought him home.
Today was to be his first day of therapy since his seizure. While walking with his cane to our car he lost his balance and fell to the ground. Something I should have anticipated but I neglected to realize how weak he really was.
This brings me to why I felt compelled to share with you and your readers. As he sat on the ground I’m trying to figure how I could lift a nearly 200-pound man and a Fed EX truck went by.
So I waved him to stop and at the same time a neighbor named Nancy was walking by. I asked them both if they could help me lift my husband into a chair. With out hesitation they both walked over to our yard and “Christian” the FedEx driver and Nancy lifted him safely to a chair.
We were both extremely grateful to both of them when in today’s busy world they could have just as easily ignored me and carried on with the business of the day.
Many thanks and “Happy Holidays” to these two small-town heroes to us.
