Thought­ful ser­vice at the garage

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - THE SOCIAL PAGE -

OUR fam­ily was gath­er­ing for our mother’s funeral ser­vice on the May long week­end.

My sis­ter and other fam­ily mem­bers came down from Flin Flon a few days early, as she had med­i­cal ap­point­ments. Un­for­tu­nately, my sis­ter was in a car accident and her ve­hi­cle was no longer drive­able. Ar­range­ments were made with Boyd Au­to­body on McPhillips Street to re­pair the ve­hi­cle, but we didn’t expect any­thing to be done un­til af­ter the long week­end.

I was sur­prised to get a phone call from Michael Juba at Boyds, ad­vis­ing us that the car would be parked in the shop to pre­vent it from van­dal­ism over the week­end.

Michael knew the fam­ily needed to re­turn to Flin Flon af­ter the funeral and the ve­hi­cle would likely take a few weeks to be re­paired.

We all want to thank Michael for his won­der­ful act of kind­ness. He ar­ranged for a ser- vice ve­hi­cle in good con­di­tion so the fam­ily mem­bers were able to re­turn home af­ter the funeral and for my sis­ter to use the loaner un­til her ve­hi­cle was re­paired.

Thank you, Michael. You went above and beyond to make this hap­pen, and we are all so very grate­ful. You made this try­ing time less stress­ful for all of us.
