Condolence: I met Mr. and Mrs. Deno on a cold winter morning. The snow was in the roads were very slick. A normal person would have been home, but I thought I needed to be at work, but God must have thought otherwise because the next thing I knew my car was on its side in an open field. I walk to the nearest farmhouse to see if I could use their phone to call for assistance. Mr. Deno came to the door and invited me in to the kitchen. he and I went on the tractor to see if we could get my car out. we could not so we went back to the house and as soon as the garage was open in Brook Mrs. Deno called for them and ask them to come out to the house. When they arrived they got my car on the wheels and out of the field, but something had broken underneath the car and they needed to take it to the garage to fix it. Mrs. Deno Took me to Brook to the café and bought me breakfast and sat with me until my car was finished. I think them and told them how appreciative I was for their generous kindness and then proceeded to work. they put up with me from 630 in the morning until almost 1 o'clock in the afternoon. I will never forget either one of them. I know for sure that Heaven has an amazing new angel up above. My sympathy to all of the Deno families.
