Kingman Letter: Random Act of Kindness Gets Noticed

Taking place at Denny's Restaurant here in Kingman at the noon hour, Friday, Dec. 14 was another spontaneous act of kindness and compassion by "Debbie," a waitress assisting a seriously handicapped patron as he was leaving the restaurant. As expected the seating area was full of customers. Busy at her station, Debbie observed the gentleman, after finishing his lunch, attempting to exit the building and rushed over to assist by holding open both doorways.

This is the act of kindness and understanding that patrons of Denny's are accorded by each and every waitress employed, when nearest to doors and observe the handicapped. Minutes later "Lynn," another waitress nearest the doorway, extended the same act of kindness for the same reason, to another patron. Aside from unsurpassed quality of food prepared by very knowledgeable well-trained chefs, local patrons and tourists passing through Kingman enjoy the best in dining experience.

When exiting the interstate freeway from either direction, turn toward the Kingman Airport facility and the restaurant is on your left. You can't miss it. Don't miss it, for exceptional dining and unsurpassed service by friendly, caring service staff.

I would like to thank sheriff deputy "Patterson" whom came to our home to "keep the peace" and did far more than his job..handling both sides of a restraining order...even stood on a log while my husband removed nails so our neighbor ( which with both have restraining orders ..both ways) so she could build a fence...even after we had already done so. But Patterson was respectful to both of us...and just to let you know...he can run really fast..and yes..deputy Patterson we have fixed the fence...Thanks for being there to serve and protect BOTH our interests! The department needs more LIKE you, none corrupted and true to the badge and the people you serve!

Both Dennys' are great eating places and both have good staff. This is a great place to meet with out of town visitors. Right off the freeway and between the airport and bus station.
Not to take away from the good deed done here, we all should take the time to show a little kindness to elderly or handicapped.
Just wondering why so many handicapped need to shop at the same time as to keep the rest of us walking so far through the parking lots?

I am glad for the random acts of kindness here but am puzzled as to why it has to be a letter to the editor.

Isn't this how most of us were raised and what everyone does for handicapped people?

Well, since you started it, I will add one. There is a woman who shops at Smith's in a wheel chair and who is very handicapped. In spite of what must be a very difficult life, she is the most pleasant lady, always a smile on her pretty face. She is inspirational to me. .

The Smith's personnel go out of their way to do everything for her, almost like caregivers. They very obviously care and are amazing to watch. It doesn't matter if the employee is male or female, young or older - they are always ahead of her need and anyone else needing help and the reason I always shop there.

Many of us feel intimidated with handicapped people simply because we do not know what to do. I have especially noticed, the young at Smith's never hesitate in their good deeds. In this day and age, that is very encouraging.

Hats off to you Smith's folks. You are simply the best.
