Thanks to everyday heroes

On May 6, as I drove on a remote section of Highway 321 heading toward Boone, my van's engine overheated and I was forced to stop.

Three gentlemen stopped to help. One, whose name I didn't get, was an employee of Boone Pharmacy, who pushed my car to the road's edge. Another was Dean Church, who helped with the traffic, as we were on a steep hill near a curve in the road. The third was Scott Lang, who stayed by my van until the tow truck arrived.

I wish to thank all three gentlemen for taking the time out of their busy day to assist and reassure a stranger. 

It's comforting to know there are good Samaritans still willing to help, when help is needed.I also wish to thank the other people who paused to ask if help was needed and Hampton's Towing for such prompt service.

My appreciation is extended to Ayla, at Joy Whitlach State Farm Insurance, who was able to give directions to my location, since no address was available. I kept losing the signal on my cell and was able to keep contact, several times, when I called her.

Thank you, one and all, for easing a trying situation.
