Kudos – Grass Valley Honest Jon

Kudos to Jon Roberts of Fast Taxi. Our 93-plus-year-young mother, Christine Sonke, a resident of Hill Top Estates, had a recent diminishment in health, requiring hospitalization at Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital.

When Christine, a feisty little lady, decided that she had had enough care, a taxi was called to return her to Hilltop Estates. Confused, Christine paid with two checks, one written in the amount of $1,000, the second a blank check. Jon Roberts did not cash those checks.

A repeat scenario alerted us. We arrived at ER simultaneously with Roberts. He informed us of the incident. Thank-you, honest Jon Roberts.

Robert and Judith Sonke
