Some folks still care

TAHLEQUAH — Editor, Daily Press:

I was driving home on Saturday when the brakes apparently locked up on my little pickup.

After several people just passed me by, two different vehicles stopped to help. They managed to get the pickup out of the road.

 One young couple went back home to get some tools and called several parts houses, looking for parts, but were unable to find any to fit. By this time, the brakes had apparently cooled down so the pickup was drivable.

So the young man drove it down to a local auto repair shop and then they gave me a ride home – a more than 20-mile round trip for them.

I am so grateful to them for all their help. I did get their names, but they may not want to be embarrassed, as this seemed to be something they would ordinarily do to help others. There are still people who will lend a hand, even when it takes a chunk out of their own day. They refused to accept any payment, although just the gas would have been an expense.

Also, a city policeman and sheriff’s deputy both stopped to see if they needed to help, too.

Thank you to all those who were concerned and helped, even the stores that let me borrow phone books and the wrecker who was willing to come if needed.

Gloria Lovel Brewster
