It is amazing how some one could just jump to the rescue for some one they don't know. That is very heroic and I have always hoped that if I saw some one in need of help that I could do it too. Ben Willette, you are an amazing person, and everyone else who stops to help a stranger.

BEN WILLETTE:
You should be very proud of yourself,if there only more people out there like you the world would be much happier place.
If there is any type of
"REWARD"
to be giving out. IN MY EYES
"YOU SHOULD BE ON TOP OF THE LIST" YOU ARE ONE BRAVE MAN,
OR
SHOULD I SAY HERO:

GOD BLESS YOU ALWAYS:
YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL
MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
