Couple’s kindness made trip great

Our senior group of nine visited Natchez on April 7, 8 and 9, during your Pilgrimage. I would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to one of your citizens.

We attended the Natchez Little Theatre and enjoyed “Southern Exposure.” Another night we were to see “Songs of the South” at the New Covenant Presbyterian Church, supposedly at 206 Main St., the address in the brochure.

We went by the address earlier in the day to be sure where we were going. There was no church. We went to the Visitor Center and she directed us just up the street.

Certain that we knew where it was; we were at the location about 7:50 p.m. Needless to say, it was not the correct address. We were parked by the curb trying to decide just what to do and were suddenly hit by a car backing into us.

The gentleman was highly indignant that we were not suppose to be parked there, not mentioning it was his fault.

Thankfully, it was not bad, so we were still pondering what to do. Along came a couple out jogging. They asked our problem and when we explained, tried his best to verbally direct us, which was out to Homochitto Street.

We told him we would just forget it, we would never find it in time. He asked if we would wait five minutes he would go get his car and take us to the church. We arrived 10 minutes late, but enjoyed the program.

We want to let this nice couple know how much their kindness was appreciated. We did not get their name, but they know who they are.
