Kind­ness at Kil­do­nan Place

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

MY hus­band and I trav­elled to Win­nipeg to cel­e­brate Fa­ther’s Day at our grand­daugh­ter’s home in Transcona. I asked my hus­band to stop at Kil­do­nan Place, as I wanted to go to Tar­get. He stayed in the van. It was rain­ing, and my shoes were wet as I walked into the mall. I stepped through the sec­ond set of doors; the floor was very shiny. My right foot slipped and I fell on my left knee, then back against the doors, in­jur­ing my back and left arm. I was un­able to get up. There were two young men and one preg­nant lady who helped me up, but I couldn’t put weight on my left leg. A lady who had seen me fall brought a chair, and the kind gen­tle­men put me on it. One of the young gen­tle­men went to get my hus­band while the other young man and two ladies waited with me. Upon my hus­band’s ar­rival, the two fel­lows car­ried me in the chair to our van. I never got their names to let them know how grate­ful I was for their help. I had surgery, and although I’m still re­cov­er­ing, I am do­ing fine. Thank you from the bot­tom of my heart. ON New Year’s Eve, our car skid­ded onto a snow­bank on Wellington Cres­cent at Ren­frew Street. Peo­ple in five dif­fer­ent cars stopped to of­fer as­sis­tance. Two men and two women at­tempted to push us out, to no avail. One woman of­fered to drive us to the near­est cof­fee shop; we had, how­ever, ac­cepted a ride to the near­est ser­vice sta­tion. At the sta­tion, Jane, a woman not of our ac­quain­tance, went out of her way to drive us home. Our thanks to all who helped us to look op­ti­misti­cally to the new year.
