I can’t thank this family enough … on July 27 my grandmother
and I were leaving Applebee’s at around 5:30 p.m. I was to lead her

I can’t thank this family enough … on July 27 my grandmother and I were leaving Applebee’s at around 5:30 p.m. I was to lead her to the freeway so that she could go back home to Santa Clara. We both made it out of the parking lot of Applebee’s onto Arroyo Circle. I made it through the light at Arroyo Circle and Leavesley, but my grandmother did not.
After waiting on the side of the road for her to catch up, I decided to go back to the intersection where I last saw her. There was my grandmother in her car crying and panicked because her car broke down right at the light.
I parked my car, and tried to help her, but the traffic was so bad at the intersection that it was hopeless. As I was on the phone trying to get a tow truck to her location, a young man was at her car trying to help her find the emergency flashers. He not only helped with the emergency flashers, he also pushed the car out of the intersection. As he was trying to push the car himself, he called to other family members to help.
It was amazing that out of all the people that passed by yelling and screaming at her, you were the only one that took the time to stop and help. You were amazing, that you helped a complete stranger with no hesitation. Your parents should be very proud of you. I can’t thank you enough. There are a few good people left in this world.
