My husband is critically ill. My children are coming to see us this weekend and I wanted the house and yard to look pretty for them.
A workman and his helper (who have done repairs and painting for us this past year) offered to help in any way they could. I called the workman to get a trellis (that was rusting) down and to haul it away. It was cased in concrete so it was very heavy.
He and his helper pulled the trellis up, set it apart as best as could be done from the concrete , put the concrete pieces back in the ground and covered them with yard dirt/soil, and then helped me put heavy benches in place over the concrete pieces so that you can’t see them and now the whole area looks very pretty.
When I offered to pay them they refused, and when I tried to hug them, to thank them, they seemed embarrassed, saying it was ok and they wished us well and for me to call them with any other emergency situations. They are angels.
