Gary, one great neighbour

  • Print

I am disabled so unable to shovel my driveway anymore. My daughter was coming over to do it, but she also pays a price for doing it as she has back problems.

Starting a few years ago, I would look out the window and see that somebody other than my daughter had shoveled my entire driveway. It took me over a month to finally find out it was my next door neighbour’s friend who lived in the next bay.

When I saw him, I offered to pay him for his hard work. But he refused any money, saying it was good exercise for him. He and my neighbour are now a couple so he lives next door to me. For the past two years, he has, without fail, cleared my driveway right down to the pavement.

He also takes my garbage and recycling bins to the curb and puts them back when they have been emptied.

Words cannot express how very grateful both my daughter and I are to Gary for his continued kindness. He certainly embraces every quality you could hope for in a neighbour and even far beyond that.

Gary, you are my angel sent from heaven and I can’t thank you enough.
