Couple helped out

Just recently my husband and I had the wonderful good fortune to meet our guardian angels in Smithers.

Dear Sir:

Just recently my husband and I had the wonderful good fortune to meet our guardian angels in Smithers.

We were driving from the Alaska ferry terminal at Prince Rupert to Prince George when we found an unexpected and unpleasant aspect to our new car – it can lock itself. It did that with our money, cell phones and keys inside.

Dennis and his wife, who are from Terrace, drove my husband to the Ford dealership in Smithers to get a new key made.

That involved two round trips. They also paid for the key, since our money was still locked inside the car.

We were able to repay them for the key, but we can never repay their kindness and caring. This was definitely a pay-it-forward circumstance, and we want them to know we will carry their kindness forward at every opportunity. Thank you, Dennis, and a thanks to your great wife.

These Alaskans have a warm spot in our hearts for British Columbians thanks to these two residents of Terrace.

Gail West,

Anchorage, Alaska
