Writer thanks strangers for help


I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU and GOD BLESS to all the kind folks who cared enough to stop and offer either their cell phone to make a call, a lift to the gas station or to wherever I needed to go, and/or any assistance at all...

I was so very humbled and touched by the kindness of total strangers who did not even know me and offered to help me when my car broke down on Feb. 23, at about 3 p.m. at the corner of Old Millersport Road and Ohio 79 (tan Chevy Lumina) with the red-head standing by the side of the road.

I just wanted to let readers know that there are a LOT of good, decent folk out there and I, for one, am tired of just hearing about the bad ones. About every vehicle that passed from all directions stopped and/or offered to help. I am SO PROUD to be a part of this area. I just wanted to say they made my day!! Deb McConnell FairfieldBeach

P. S. It's a real old car, so who knows you may findme out there again. Ha Ha!
