Couple thanks young man who helped them in a time of need

To the editor

I want to extend a sincere thanks to a kind, gentle and helpful young man that works for Island Lawn Care. I'm in Ohio now, but a couple weeks back my husband and I were stopped alongside the road with van trouble on Pine Island Road. The trouble, as it turned out, was the muffler was coming off our handicap accessible van. My husband was in his motorized chair alongside the road when this young man passed then turned around and came back to see what help he could offer. We had no tools with us and neither did he. However, he saw that with something he had to cut with he could at least take the muffler off. After asking if that would be OK and permission given, he did just that. We were on our way to the Punta Gorda airport. He made it possible we could motor on and back, a bit noisy I might say, but a safe trip. I failed to get this young man's name, I saw it on his shirt, but didn't remember it. My husband and I would like to extend a sincere thank you to this young man.
