Thanks for help pushing dead car out of the way

Email

This letter is late in coming, but I still would like to send it. On Thursday morning, July 23 at 6:50 a.m., I was on my way to the Becker County Fair Grounds to help with judging in the open class needlework division. As I pulled into the left hand turn lane at the corner of Roosevelt and Highway 34, my jeep decided to die and would not start again. I was already part way into the intersection and a hazard to all traffic. 

I got out and started to push my vehicle the rest of the way thru the intersection and around the corner to get it off to the side of the road and traffic. I was almost through the intersection when a good Samaritan, who was traveling north on Roosevelt, jumped out of his vehicle and ran to my rescue, helping me to finish pushing my vehicle, which finally started again after I turned everything off for a couple of minutes, off to the side. 

I would like to thank this nameless person who took the time out of his day to help me out that morning. You have no idea what your intervention meant to me that day.
