Thank you, Wally

My heartfelt thank you and gratitude to a Kal-Tire service-truck angel who saw the trouble I was in on a very cold day.

I was approaching the Route 90 underpass when I realized I had a tire problem. I was in heavy traffic and I had to drive through the underpass to the other side, hoping to see a tire repair shop, which was further away than I realized.

I pulled over and tried get through to CAA to no avail. Lo and behold, a Kal-Tire service truck pulled in front of my car and out jumped the driver. He was an angel asking if I needed help.

Big time, I replied.

Very quickly, he had all he needed from his truck to remove my ruined tire and replace it with my spare so I could continue to the tire shop. He said he would follow me to make sure I was safe.

In answer to my quick prayer, the angel sent to help me was Wally Dokken.

Thank you Wally & Kal-Tire for being special.
