Jackie Schroth has something to say to the good Samaritan who came to her aid in Strongsville recently: Thank you!
She sent this message to Strongsville Patch's Facebook page:
Hello, a few weeks ago I was stranded at Drug Mart. My daughter dropped me off and had to run to another store. I then realized we left our house in Columbia Station with a pan of water boiling on top of our gas stove. To make a long story short, while standing outside of Drug Mart, I started asking people if they were leaving to go west on (Route) 82. Approximately 10 people said no. Finally a sweetheart of a man told me yes, he was headed west on 82. Unfortunately, I do not remember his name, but he did tell me that he worked for the city of Strongsville and had a red truck. I hope he reads this because I want him to know how very grateful I am to him for giving me a ride home, especially since I was in a state of panic. What a wonderful man he is and I just want him to be aware of how special he is. Thank you sir.
Schroth said she felt ridiculous asking strangers for a ride, and wants to thank her good Samaritan who stopped to help her out.
"I am so very grateful to that wonderful man," she wrote.
Does anyone know who the city employee was? Email Strongsville Patch editor Debbie Palmer at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll update the story with his name.
