Talk about a kind hearted, considerate young man.
My daughter-in-law got stuck at the foot of our driveway, driving my wife back home from a luncheon she and a few girlfriends attended.
All of us and later my neighbor (as old as I am) tried in vain to get my daughter’s car unstuck. No matter what we did, dig, push, you name it, the situation only got worse.
Then my neighbor tried to drive by with his van to get to a doctor’s appointment, only to get stuck beside my daughter’s car.
Enter the kind-hearted young man. This fellow, who lives in East St. Paul, was driving down Gilmore Avenue to deliver something when he noticed all of us stuck on Hooper Place.
After his delivery, as he was driving back, he noticed we were still all stuck. He turned onto our street and offered to help. By this time, the husband of one of the women from the stuck car came up the street. Between the three of us, with my daughter behind the wheel, we got my daughter’s vehicle mobile, and she drove to where she was no longer in trouble.
Then this kind young fellow hauled out a towing rope, hooked it to my neighbor’s van and proceeded to pull him out, too.
I spoke to him, thanking him for all his help, but forgot to get his name. I would like to thank him once again for his kind assistance, without which, we would likely still all be digging and pushing in vain.
There just aren’t enough great young men like him around.
