Terry comes to the rescue

  • Print

I STARTED off my busy day of errands but felt my car was not "riding" properly.

I pulled into the parking lot of a nearby Home Depot on Bishop Grandin at St. Anne’s Road. I got out and noticed my front tire was flat. As I am a senior with back problems, I couldn’t fix the tire myself. I called my daughter to come pick me up. I was waiting for about 15 to 20 minutes while lots of men drove by me.

Suddenly, a very nice man named Terry Holwaty came to my rescue. He kindly offered to exchange the flat tire for the spare. He said he hoped if it was his wife, mother or daughter stuck with a flat, someone would be kind enough to help. He was shocked to learn I was sitting so close to the entrance to the parking lot and not one other person stopped to help me.

I want to give a big thank you to Terry, my guardian angel. The world is a better place with you in it, Terry.
