You know you’ve done something worthwhile when it’s being emulated over 1,000 miles away…twice:
KUSA – The heartwarming story of an Eastern Plains auto mechanic who footed a $1,500 repair bill for a struggling single father, has inspired people across the country.
Chris Oakley, owner of C&T Auto Repair in Strasburg, Colorado gave the early Christmas gift to Cory Grimes. Grimes works as a part-time dishwasher at High Plains Diner in Bennett and cares for his 7-year-old son who has autism.
It would break “fair use” to quote much more of this article, but please read how Chris’ actions were emulated in Wisconsin and Louisiana:
“Mechanic’s act of kindness creates chain reaction”
The person blessed in Louisiana by the free service said the mechanic was “Santa Claus.” Seems to me Santa Claus actually lives in Strasburg and owns C&T Auto Repair. 🙂
