Thanks for helping mom

I would like to say thank you to Chris and his wife -- sadly my mom's friends did not get their last name -- for the help they gave to my mom and her friends.

My mom and her two friends were out one evening on River Avenue when my mom tripped and fell.

Chris and his wife stopped to ensure she was OK. They not only drove my mom and her two friends to Misericordia Urgent Care, but they also offered to give them money for a taxi home if they didn't have enough.

By the time my mom's friends contacted us and we got to the hospital, these two wonderful people where long gone.

All I can say is thank you so much for taking the time to help my mom and her friends.

My wife and I are truly thankful that such wonderful people as you were there.

I cannot say how grateful we are. Thank you.

-- Deb and Gerald Bazylewski

Do you see

yourself here?

MY son's bike broke while he was riding down the Osborne Street underpass, on the Friday night /Saturday morning of the August long weekend.

Luckily, two young people riding the opposite way witnessed the accident and came to my son's aid. They called 911 and stayed with him until the ambulance arrived.

Also Nicole and her partner stopped to help out.

My son had a severe concussion among other injuries and is alive today because he was wearing a bike helmet. He has no recollection of the events of that night.

If you recognize yourselves as the people who helped him out that night please accept our deepest gratitude. You are truly wonderful people.

Kansas says thank you, Manitoba

LAST week, we travelled from Kansas to visit relatives in Winnipeg.

As we entered the city, we missed an important corner and lost our way.

We found that the term Friendly Manitoba is reality. Searching for help in finding our direction, we turned off the main street and found a shop called Under the Hood. We asked the gentleman there (who we believe to be the owner) for help and he immediately went to the computer, printed out a map and explained where we should go.

As we returned to our car, he called out that if we wanted to wait for 10 minutes he would be going that way and would lead us to the area. He just needed to lock up and then he would be leaving. We decided to wait.

True to his word, he led us through rush hour traffic right into the cul-de-sac we were seeking.

We offered a small monetary thank you, but he would not accept it. So we are sending a public thank you to this Friendly Manitoba.

We are thankful Kansas visitors.
