Wonderful ride

I was discharged from Mercy General in Sacramento where I had heart surgery. We were waiting for a taxi to take us home from Spring Hill Pharmacy, seated near us was a lady waiting for her prescription to be filled and she overheard our concern about the missing taxi.

We would like to thank Mrs. Hepburn of Chicago Park and let her neighbors know they have a remarkable lady in their vicinity.
