Stranger an angel

  • Print

The woman I want to thank is a complete stranger to both my husband and me, but she is an angel.

I had a very scary medical emergency in IKEA’s parking lot. While my husband stood holding me up, this woman stopped to help. She stayed with us until the paramedics arrived, helping to keep both of us calm.

The whole incident was the scariest event in my life, but this angel spoke to me calmly and kept telling me I would be OK.

She also helped my husband stay calm, as he too was very scared as we didn’t know what was happening.

I could not see her face, but I will always remember her voice. I’m sorry I did not get a chance to really thank her, but I hope she sees this so she knows how much she truly helped us.

My husband and I are very grateful to her for staying by our side. So it is my hope that whoever you are, wherever you are, that you see this and know that I am okay and that you are appreciated.

Thank you again.

— Crystal Steck
