Thank you for helping mom get home

I want to say, “thank-you” to the kind, caring, and empathetic man who took the time to listen and drive my mom safely home.

On Wednesday, Oct. 24, my 70-year-old mother went for her daily walk at 6:45 a.m. She set off from 126 Street and 60 Avenue.

Happily walking, she realized she was lost after she mistakenly ended up on 120 Street and 64 Avenue.

She got disoriented and ended up near Sunshine Hills Elementary (her grandkids’ school).

She knew she was far and she was really, really tired, panicked and frightened.

My dear mom has had four knee operations and her walks are important to her health. She was sore and not prepared for her extra-long walk. She flagged down a kind man who was dropping off his baby. She explained her story to him in her broken English; she said he understood she was “too far.”

He drove her home safely. She offered to walk part of the way, but he insisted he would drive her home.

I want to say, “thank-you” to the kind, caring, and empathetic man who took the time to listen and drive my mom safely home.

The entire Rai family thanks him for bringing her safely home. She is blessed to have met him that day.

His sense of community and social responsibility is commendable.

I wish one day I could meet him and thank him personally for taking care of my mom.

I know he probably had a lot on his plate, like us all, but he took the time to drive her home safely.

Thank you once again.
