Good Samaritans demonstrated kindness & thoughtfulness

Friday evening we attended the Marshalltown-Fort Dodge football game. We had not been able to attend one of our grandson Ryan’s games in two years, due to his grandfather’s health. It’s a 3-1/2 hour drive from our home to Marshalltown, but we made the trip.

After watching the first half of the game, “grampa” decided we needed to leave cause the ride down and sitting at the game was a bit taxing. You see, he’d just had a bone marrow biopsy three days earlier in preparation for a stem cell transplant (for a reoccurrence of lymphoma).

We got up to leave and his legs could hardly move forward. At the bottom of the stadium ramp, a Good Samaritan witnessed our struggle and asked if he could get us a cart. Grampa was so grateful. Soon a different fellow drove up in the golf cart and drove us to our vehicle … quite a distance. He continued his kindness by helping my husband get into our truck.

After relating this story to my daughter, she did a bit of investigating and informed me the initial Good Samaritan was the MHS principal’s husband. The cart driver, we do not know.

I just wanted to say, though this kindness may seem “small” to some, it meant more to us than you will ever know! You both helped us so much!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts … and great job Bobcats!
