To The Herald-Whig:

I visited Quincy last month for the historic homes tour.

I was amazed at the number of volunteers helping making the tour so enjoyable. But best were the people who came to my rescue. I encountered an issue with my travel trailer on Cedar Street. Two wonderful couples came to my aid, and Denise and Dave at Driftwood Campground went above and beyond helping me with a mechanical problem.

Incidents that could have ruined my visit were instead encounters with generous kindness. I am so grateful!
