Letters: Helping a lady in distress

Appreciation is shown for the people who aided stranded motorist

There are still nice people in the world.

I would like to thank the nice gentlemen for stopping to help a lady in distress on Friday, July 20, 2012 at 6:50 a.m.

My car had broken down on Sooke Road going east. He was going west, he turned around to help. Thank you so very much.

When I did get the car running, I did not get far. I broke down again on  the four lanes.

There I was again. No cell phone. This nice couple pulled over and went out of their way to give me a ride to work. I would like to everyone so very much, with their help I made it to work on time.

It’s people like you that make the world a better place.

The red Tracker lady,

Sheila Griffiths

Sooke
