Everyday Angels

This angel went above and beyond in SouthPark

One morning this fall, my husband and I – both in our 90s – were driving in the SouthPark area when we had a flat tire.

We didn’t have our cell phone with us, but before we could decide what to do, a young man stopped and offered to change the tire for us. We gratefully accepted his kind offer.

But we soon discovered there was another problem. Our spare tire was flat, also.

Without hesitation, our angel drove to a service station, inflated the spare and returned to complete the job. We were so appreciative of his time, effort and kindness.

What a blessing to know there are still such good people in this troubled world. Paul Windsor, many thanks for your help.

Mr. and Mrs. T.E. Stanley, Charlotte (As told to Page Leggett)
