Act of Kindness from Gregg and Karen

On April 19, 2020 my husband and I were taking a walk in our neighborhood. About 400 yards from our house, a man collapsed in the street, unresponsive and without a pulse. There were about six people on the scene, all paralyzed by fear and not reacting, due to our worry about the COVID19 virus, and not wanting to get within six feet of the man. Except for one person. My husband Gregg. He immediately went to the man's side, checked his pulse, and performed CPR. Paramedics arrived on the scene, transported the man to Regions, and later acknowledged that Gregg's actions saved the man's life.

Fast forward to August 6, 2020 when the man, his daughter and granddaughter arrived at our house to meet my husband and express their gratitude. Many tears of joy were shed by both families. In the spirit of the holiday season, the man's daughter showed up at our house today, November 29th, with a Christmas gift and holiday card with this message: "And a big thank you for saving my father's life. Thanks to your actions, we can enjoy his presence this Holiday season."
