Nice gesture

To the Editor:

Last week, I took my 91-year-old father to get a haircut at Slim’s Barber Shop in Crystal Lake. We didn’t have an appointment and, when we arrived, there were a half-dozen in line ahead of us.

Slim said he could get him in at 1:40 if we could come back.

On our way out, my dad lost his footing and began to fall. I tried to stop him but then we both went down. Several people in the barber shop saw it and came running out to help us up.

When we returned at 1:40 p.m., Adam sat Dad right down and cleaned him up really nice. When I took out my wallet to pay, he said, “It’s already paid for.” When I inquired by whom, he said a Cary firefighter named Nate.

Nate, you paid for a very important cut for my Dad. His wife of more than 70 years just passed the day before. He was getting cleaned up for her memorial.

God bless you, friend!
