This is a tribute to all those wonderful people in Salt Lake City who are kind and helpful to the handicapped. I take care of all of my outside business, but I walk with two canes and it's a welcome relief when someone opens a door, invites me to go ahead of them in a long line at the post office or gives me a hand in trying to get up from soft cushions in a public waiting room.

Recently, I was carrying a very heavy medical record into an office building when a young woman offered to carry the records and led me into a new doctor's suite. Then, on Saturday before Mother's Day, I was leaving a small grocery store when a young man said, "Excuse me, my mother is in Europe and I'd like you to have these flowers." He handed me a lovely bouquet of fresh flowers that remained fresh for two weeks. And I was so touched that I was reluctant to discard them after they wilted.I asked his name and if I remember correctly, I believe he said his name is Warner. Because I was so hurried and tired, I failed to ask the young woman's name, but if these two young people read this letter, they will know of my gratitude for their acts of kindness.
