The kindness of strangers

October 03, 2008|By JOYCE BOEHL, Falling Waters, W.Va.

Enroute from West Virginia to Kansas in July, my cell phone died. I needed to call to get directions.

I could not find a Sprint store or a pay phone. I asked the clerk at a Holiday Inn Express if I could use her phone and reimburse her. She let me use her phone, but would not accept any money. I was given directions on how to locate my friends in Wichita, Kan., but the directions were wrong. I stopped at a gas station and asked for help. A customer who ran a delivery service in Wichita mapped out directions and they were 100-percent accurate.
