LETTER: Chilliwack couple who helped young woman with flat tire ‘a credit to your city’

‘There are many good, kind people out there willing to take the time to help others’

I am writing to thank the couple from Chilliwack who came to my daughter’s rescue last weekend.

She was stranded with a flat tire about 20 kilometres from Spences Bridge. With no cellphone service and a lack of tire-changing skills, she was delighted when a couple stopped and offered to help. Thanks to them she was soon on the road again and made it safely to Prince George in time to start her new job.

My daughter did not get their names so I am hoping these “good neighbours” will read this thank-you message and know how much it meant to have them assist a young woman stuck on the side of the road. They are a credit to your city.

In this time of pandemics and protests it reminded me there are many good, kind people out there willing to take the time to help others.

Chilliwack couple, your random act of kindness is truly appreciated. You are now included in my noise-making thank-yous at 7 p.m. each evening.

Catherine Calder
