Random Acts of Kindness award goes to my neighbor Ed Mazza in Mentror. He did the gtrocery shopping, and unpacking, got the mail from the box at the end of the driveway, shoveled the paths for Maggie to find her way back to the back door in the snow..and took the trash to the curb for colllection.. I bless this man for the acts of kindness, as no matter how late his business would take him, he always callled to see if I needed something. It was the middle of the winter and I had just found out about VPA Visitiing Physicians Association. Ed and the VPA, with the hellp of 2 girlfriends Kay & Helen helped me through an extremely serious illness and thanks to Robert Cowan, the gentleman from MOL who runs his wiinter snowplow business. Bless you Robert for the driveway and then the walkway to the house so the VPA doctors, nurses, and therapistsit could make it to the front door. Last and far from least goes to someone I will call mhy adopted Brother. For 40 years, we have been friends. I came out here from NJ and he has been a member of my family ever siince. He came out on his day off from his business to cut and color my hair. Always brings breakfast.. He never forgets me and calls regullarly. My catastrophy happened at once 1 1/2 years ago....These are the true people that do not push themselves into the limelight - they are not the ones to stare at the broken branches on my lawn....they are the ones to pick up the branches without a camera watchiing them.

Wow good for you patch the very thought that someone said hay let's spread the word has made my day. For all the violence and truly awful things going on in the world today its heart warming to hear of the honest goodness in our fellow man. They give and expect nothing in return. I am sure they surround us far more than we realize. Thank you for the opportunity to let the world know who they are and how special people step up when they see a need they can fill.
