Cheers & Jeers
CHEERS: To the unknown man and the staff at Julie’s Deli for coming to the assistance of my dad when he fell on the sidewalk Monday, Dec. 3. They called for an ambulance, the staff brought towels to prop up his head, the unknown man brought a blanket to cover him up with, and they stayed with him until help arrived. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. May God bless you for your kindness.—D.C., Texarkana, Ark.
CHEERS: To the two ladies at Collom and Carney Clinic who gave me oxygen and stayed with me until the ambulance arrived. Cheers to the two young men in that ambulance who started my treatment and kept me calm and laughing all the way to the ER. Cheers to all at CHRISTUS St. Michael ER who treated me with skill and kindness.—B.T., Texarkana, Ark.
