Local senior grateful for volunteer help

Ones faith has to be restored in people and that some still care about the elderly

A sincere thank you to the very thoughtful gentleman from Hope who offered to finish cleaning and tidying my flower beds in September.

He did quality work, finished the hard work and did not want pay. This gentleman read my warning to seniors in The Hope Standard, about a con artist in our area. The individual asks for a down-payment, works two to three hours and never returns – your money is gone as well.

The gentleman who finished the job did quality work. He’d rather not be named. I’ll be forever grateful for his generosity and sincerity. Ones faith has to be restored in people and that some still care about the elderly.

Thank you again – a grateful Sto:lo Elder.
