My name is Tom Wisdom and during the second week of June, I was traveling through Torrington with my 14-year-old son.
We were on our way home from North Dakota we live in Colorado Springs when one of the front tires on my truck blew out. It was late afternoon on a Sunday as I started to change my tire. Several vehicles passed me, but one vehicle stopped to offer assistance.
The driver was a woman named Georgia Honstein, who lives in nearby Yoder. She asked me if I needed any help, and I said that I was OK and thanked her for stopping.
She left, but she returned about 20 minutes later with her husband, Bernie.
Bernie helped me change my tire and once it was changed we noticed that it was almost flat, so they offered to use their air compressor, which they had at their home, to inflate my tire. Their assistance was unexpected but appreciated and once my tire was inflated I was able to continue home.
I live in a town of over 400,000 people and I am not used to friendly drivers, so I was surprised by their actions. I want to recognize them for their friendliness and thank them for their help.
My son said it best when we were on our way when he said Wow dad, those people are very nice.
