To the editor:
Wednesday morning I was on my bike, riding as fast as I could to try and make an appointment at the hospital when I hit a patch of ice on my bicycle that sent me crashing to the pavement and skidding across the road on my arm and stomach.
I fell hard enough to crack my helmet and was somewhat dazed when this extremely kind man named Rick came out of nowhere to help me up. This gentleman was kind enough to load me and my bike into his van and drive me to make my appointment on time.
All I got was his first name and in my stunned state, cannot remember the name of the company he worked for, only that he was on his way to a job on Uplands.
I just really wanted to thank Rick again for not only caring enough to stop and help a total stranger but for being such a good listener.
With all the bad news in the world, it’s so reassuring to know there are people like Rick in the world who would take the time out of their day to stop and help a total stranger.
Thank you again, Rick.
