Thank you for help in time of need

My neighbor and I were returning home from the wonderful band concert at Page Park. My friend, while stepping up to the walk over the curb, tripped and fell, bloodying her nose, scraping her elbows and put a lump on her forehead.

A passing truck stopped immediately and a young man hastened over to help her up. He opened her lawn chair, helped her into it, and told her to lean her head back. Since she is on a blood thinner, we wanted to be sure of stopping it.

We did not get the young man's name. A family from my church pulled in and said they would take us home. The young man smiled and went to his truck, and I was too slow to call for his name.

But we are so grateful to him and thought we would say thank you. That seems so little to say. We couldn't express our appreciation adequately so I hope he will see our letter and know he was a friend in need, indeed. Who says we don't have good people in Dixon?

We also appreciated the kindness and extra special help from our friend who also was Johnny-on-the-spot in our need. Thank you, Sue and all.

God bless you with the blessings that you and the young man deserve. I am legally blind, and my neighbor lady has vision problems. Thank you sincerely.
