On the morning of Feb. 20, around 6:45 a.m., in the middle of a snow storm, my car quit running at the intersection of 38th and Harrison. I was taking my husband to McKay-Dee Hospital to have a medical procedure performed. We were already late for his appointment, because of the snow and traffic.

I tried to get my car started several times, with no luck. No knowing what else to do, I called my grandson who lives with us. He said he would be right there. A few minutes later he called back and said he couldn't find the keys to our truck and that he was calling a friend to come to our rescue.

Meanwhile, a gentleman stopped and offered to tow us to the hospital. Another lady stopped and took my husband to the hospital. I tried to pay them, but they would not accept any money. The kind gentleman said, "I've been there myself, and I know what it's like."

About 30 minutes later, my grandson and his friend met me at the hospital and got my car started. Here again I tried to pay the friend, but he wouldn't accept anything.

I just want these three good Samaritans to know how much I appreciate them and wish them all the good luck in the world for being such nice and helpful people. Thank you so much for your help.
