In this day and age to receive any recognition for any good thing that you do is usually ample gratification, you don't need to send him any thing else, Heck if you got a fin to spare I'll bet there is one of our Brothers or sisters that could use it to help with the medications or something! Your a Great person, hell your all "great Pepole" and I knew I could count on everyone to help.
When I did the Internet search trying to get his home address, I actually found his Grandparents and his Parents numbers, when I explained to his father what I was trying to do and the reason I wanted to send it to their house
well it's not often that I get to hear Grown men cry from being over joyed.
This wonderful man just couldn't understand why I was going to the length that I am to say thanks to his son for doing his job.
I was a manager over some very large crews in my day and lets face it, it's never the many good things the get you some recognition, it's the one litle error or bad thing that usually gets the attention!
If you all could of heard this mans reaction as I explained how I felt his son was an true life angel, Well it was beyond worth and I will never forget it! so thank you all for helping me do this for this special person! Pappy
