Soaking wet, she decided to flag down the next car. A young
man stopped to help her-generally unheard of in those conflict-filled
1960s. The man took her to safety, helped her get assistance and put her
into a taxi cab. She seemed to be in a big hurry!
She wrote down his address, thanked him and drove away.
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
delivered to his home. A special note was attached. The note read:
Dear Mr. James:
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
Mrs. Nat King Cole.
