Natchez man was kindhearted lifesaver

I just want to say a heartfelt “thank you” to a true gentleman, Warren Wheat of Natchez Custom Paint and Body Shop. I had the sad misfortune of running my car out of gas on Feb. 7 after dark just three miles out of Washington, and a gas station.

I pulled to the shoulder, turned on my flashers and activated my Onstar and they were to send me a police officer as well as a wrecker with some gas. After sitting there 1.5 hours in the dark, alone, feeling so very stupid, Mr. Wheat came to my rescue.

He had not been called, but was just acting as a good samaritan. “M’am, can I help you?”

Those were the best words I had heard all day long. I was cold, scared, mad and worried.

I gave him a $10 bill and asked him if he would mind running to the station and getting me some gas.

“Oh, no M’am. I’ll be right back.”

When he got back, the state trooper arrived.

Mr. Wheat added my gas, and, this was what shocked, me. He tried to give me my change, and a receipt for the gas he had just purchased.

I surely would not accept either. This kind man had just rescued me; he didn’t have anything else to prove to me.

I then tipped and thanked him but it seemed so little beside what he had just done for me.

Thank you Mr. Wheat for allowing God to use you! May God richly bless you and your business!
