Letter: Grateful for bystanders' help

I met three angels last week. After parking my car to pick up a takeout order at a local restaurant on Mount Vernon Road, I fell.

Out of nowhere a young lady came to ask if I was OK and could she help me up. Then a young man appeared and offered to call an ambulance because I was bleeding. Another gentleman came forward with tissue and gave me a handful. I was feeling OK so went into the store to get my food. The gentleman carried my package to my car and offered to follow me home, which he did.

I never obtained anyone’s name and I want to say thank you and God bless each one of you.
