 man  stopped to help her-generally unheard of in those conflict-filled

 Seven days went by and a knock came on the man's door.  To his
 surprise,  a giant combination console color TV and stereo record player were

  Thank you so much for assisting me on the highway the other night.
 The  rain drenched not only my clothes but my spirits.  Then you came
 along.  Because of you, I was able to make it to my dying husband's bedside
 just before he passed away.  God bless you for helping me and unselfishly
  serving others.

  Mrs. Nat King Cole.
