Each Saturday, The Express community newspaper highlights people, groups and activities our readers deem worthy of applause.
APPLAUSE goes out to a very kind man. Pulling my light tan Impala into a parking space at Walmart on Wednesday afternoon, April 10, my right front fender scraped the left rear door of the black auto next to me. As I surveyed both cars, I could see dollar signs bulding up and it actually made me ill. I placed a note under his windshield wiper, apologizing, along with my name and phone number. When I returned home, there was a phone message from the owner relating that he had found my note and very much appreciated my notification. He kindly stated that it was purely cosmetic and that I was not to be concerned. What a gift! Thank you kind sir. I’d love to shake your hand. I breathed a grateful sigh of relief, thanked my God for that honest compassionate genetleman and asked God to bless him “real good.” I was able to rub out the black paint from my fender — good to go. Thanks Lord. Another day in the life of Jane Reed and her precious Lord.
— Jane Reed, of Avis
