Unselfish actions appreciated

On May 30 my husband experienced a random act of kindness that truly was remarkable. We live in Calhoun County and my husband had to travel to Parkersburg to get some gardening supplies. His vehicle died at the exit ramp off I-77 and Emerson Avenue. He tried to restart the car, but to no avail. Many, many cars went by with no offer to help. My husband is 72 years old and has had many heart problems along with other health issues. The temperature that day was in the 90s and he became very anxious.

A young man in an older, small, dark-colored pickup truck stopped and asked if he could help. To make a long story short, this young man took my husband to the Ford dealership, stayed with him until the dealership towed his car, and didn’t leave him until my husband had gotten a rental car. He did not leave my husband until he was certain he would be able to get home safely.

His kindness was overwhelming. In all the excitement, my husband could not remember this young man’s name. We only know that he was a waiter at the Mountaineer restaurant and he drives an older, small, dark-colored pickup. I would love to be able to thank him personally. If anyone recognizes who this is, please tell him we are very grateful for his unselfish actions.

In this day and age of “not getting involved,” this young man went above and beyond to help a fellow human being and could very well have saved my husband’s life. He was a blessing to us as I’m sure he is to all who know him.
