Act of kindness


To the Editor:

Sunday, Oct. 31, was cold and windy. My wife and I were dismayed to find, as we left early church, that we had a flat tire. We made our way on the rim to a gas station at Mack and Vernier, only to find it shut because of a power outage. AAA estimated a wait of more than an hour for help.

Mr. Jack McMurry, manger of Elias Big Boy, next door to the gas station, was having his own problems because of the power outage. Nevertheless, he cheerfully came to our rescue. He changed the tire with admirable efficiency, and bid us a smiling goodbye.

We two seniors are deeply grateful to him for his assistance, and for bolstering our faith in human kindness.

Ellis J. Van Slyck, M.D.
