To The Editor:

I have a person I would love to see in “Angel of the Week.” Here is a little reason why.

On Wednesday, May 15, I was heading to the doctor over by SkyRidge. As I got in the turning lane, my car instantly died. I had no idea what to do. As I got out of my car, I couldn’t help but cry. I wasn’t sure what to do.

I sat there for about five minutes. Then, out of nowhere, this really nice man pulled up in an F-150 truck, newer model. He got out of his truck, walked up to mine and asked if I was OK. He asked if he could look under the hood ... I said to have at it.

As he looked at my car, he told me my battery was too small for my ’98 Ford Explorer. He looked at me, told me he would be right back. He was going to buy me a brand new battery. I cried, “Oh no you’re not, Sir! I can’t accept that!”

He got in his truck and left. I rolled my car back out of the road into a tire shop. I sat there for a few minutes with doubt this man would return. To my surprise, I looked up and there that man stood, brand new battery in hand — $112 is what he paid for it.

I cried so hard. He literally saved my day. I thanked him so many times before he left. I didn't get to catch his name, but he was definitely an angel in disguise! He deserves so much to know how very thankful I am that he showed up that day. Mind you, he was the only one to stop and help.

Thank you so much, my angel!
