Thankful for helping hands

To the editor:

On Saturday, May 30, my husband and I were coming back from Trevilians Battlefield from a trail ride with two horses. Going east on Route 33 into the town of Louisa, we lost our power steering on our vehicle. The truck was beginning to get hot, so we had to pull over somewhere.  

We pulled over at Mike’s Auto Sales on Main Street. It did not appear to be open and we really didn’t know what to do. Just as we were discussing options, a gentleman came over and asked what the problem was. He wasn’t open that day, but he was waiting for a ride himself. 

He came over and looked at our vehicle and went and picked up a belt that had broken and brought it back and actually installed it. He asked if the horses needed a fan on them and if we wanted, he could go inside and put the a/c on for us if were too hot. 

After the job was complete, we asked how much we owed. He was only going to charge for the belt. We paid him for the job and certainly appreciate his service.  

You don’t see people like this anymore so I wanted to make sure he was recognized for all his kindness. That was Mike himself.
