LETTER: Thank you, stranger, for changing my flat tire

To the editor;

To the very kind gentleman who changed the flat tire for me on my Ford Taurus on Wednesday afternoon Dec. 22, 64 Avenue and 166 Street.

I was a senior woman returning alone to my home in Burnaby when the front right tire went flat.

I pulled over to the side of the road, contemplating my choices. A young lad knocked on the window saying, “My dad saw your flat tire and will fix it for you.”

This gentleman did indeed fix the tire! And, what a wonderful example of kindness to his three children who were also there.

I thanked him but neglected to get his name. Thank you!! Once again, these spontaneous acts of kindness restores one’s faith in humanity, especially at the festive Christmas season.

A very grateful senior,

Mrs. R. Johnson
