Great big thank you to everyone that helped me and my 80-year-old mom when she took a bad tumble in the parking lot of Save-On Foods at South Point the morning of Nov. 26.

Flat on her face, lying on the asphalt, walker laying in a heap six feet away kind of tumble.

Thank you to the strangers who stopped their cars and called 911, the Save-On employee busy collecting shopping carts who ran into the store to get the first-aid attendant; Audra, the store’s first-aid attendant, who covered my mom with a blanket from the store and held her hand until the paramedics came; Paul, the assistant manager who came out to direct traffic and waited with us for the ambulance.

There were so many people that came to help us, and not one of them had to, they just did…
