Letter: A word of thanks

During the rough days of Florence, on Sunday morning about 12:40 a.m., we had a big limb split off the tree at the street. It blocked our driveway and our neighbor’s driveway and part of his yard.

We knew it was going to be a mess to clean up, and we were not able to do it ourselves.

Before 8 a.m. that morning, we heard chainsaws. We looked out and saw three gentlemen from the city of Salisbury cutting the limb up and loading it on the truck. After they had finished cutting up the limb, they cleaned up all the other trash that came from the limb. They did an awesome job.

We would like to thank them. It meant so much to us.

Here is a big thank you to the three guys who work for the city of Salisbury. God bless them all. It was a miracle for us.

— Ernest & Delora Crowell
