Oakvillian thanks kind officer for helping him out in a tough situation


Letter to the Editor

To the editor:

I was in local hardware and picked a battery for my father-in-law’s key fob.

Reached for my wallet — oh boy, left it at home.

My frustration must have been spotted easily, as a couple came to me and asked if they could help. They insisted and paid for the battery.

Turns out after I kept asking them how I could thank them, no way.

I finally found out he is a St. Louis County officer, and he could have given me a ticket for driving without a license.

They were a blessing for their kindness.
