It is very important to me, and I believe it would help a lot of people, especially the elderl,y to have this information. That’s why I chose to write to your readers today.
Several months ago, I needed a ramp so that I could use my walker to learn how to walk without falling in my front yard.
Around the month of May, I contacted the Department of Aging. Mrs. Lori Faircloth, the director, related to me that they would be happy to help but advised me rather cautiously that my waiting time may be rather lengthy, since their backlog was huge.
The last week in June, a group of employees from the Department of Aging came to my house, bringing all the necessary material to build the ramp, and said, ” We will be back the first week in July to build the ramp.”
They came and speedily built one of the most gorgeous ramps I have ever seen Right before my eyes in my yard, the tranformation occurred. I looked out my window, and thought, what an amazing group as they worked together putting the ramp in place. Seeing they had finished the ramp in a few hours, I opened the front door to thank them.
Mr. Scott Baldwin, the leader, stated that his group were from three schools, which he spoke briefly about.
I was impressed with their work, gracious style, good code of ethics and their regard for the elderly.
At the end of the discussion, Mr. Baldwin turned and asked one of the young students to pray.
I was touched and moved by the spirit of this group, who demonstrated that doing something for the disabled and elderly brought joy into their lives. Too, I knew that where ever that they went someone was going to be made happy.
They offered me so much more than a ramp, and I greatly appreciate what they did for me and what Iknow they will do for others.
Very sincerely yours,
