On Dec. 2, my sister and I went to Lowe’s on Albemarle Road to do some shopping. I am confined to a wheelchair.
It had rained and the tires on my wheelchair would not drive up the ramp because they were wet. We tried everything. During my moment of panic, a nice young man walked up, asked to help, counted to three and then pushed me (in the chair) right into my van.
He was so great. I didn’t get his name, but hope he sees this and knows how much I appreciate him and what he did. Phyllis Hord, Concord

About this time last year, I stopped at a small neighborhood store in Fort Mill and they had pumpkin on sale, so I bought the 10 cans left on the shelf and a few other items.
As I checked out, there were two policemen directly behind me. When I went to exit, one asked me if he could carry my bags to the car. At 85, I was delighted to accept the offer. He proceeded to do just that, and I was parked quite a distance from the store.
What a lovely and kind surprise it was during a time when the police were and are still being denigrated. It brought tears to my eyes as I thanked him. Lois Porter, Fort Mill, S.C.
