A Tell Me Something Good Submission

We are hearing from community members with stories that are heartwarming.  So in these gray days of spring, while our lawns are being watered and our reservoirs are full to over flowing – here is a little sunshine of the human spirit kind from a  listener:

There are 2 people that are the most caring & giving people in the Whole County! There names are James & Linda Groom. They have been delivering wood for the Senior Wood Foundation Program for 7 years. They have kept Myself and 1000’s of others in this county, warm in the winter, when nobody else does! They also volunteer their time to every Red Cross call that comes across the emergency radios. They find distressed people & animals shelter, and give comfort & supplies in the most terrifying times. They are LIFESAVERS and someone who deserves much recognition. They always have smiles on their faces and positive stories to share with everyone they come into contact with! They Are My Heroes!!! All of this is done at their own expense & with gas prices being at an all time high, they are available 365 days per year/24 hours a day. They are definitely MY “Tell Me Something Good Story!”  — Sandy Hall  (I was the owner of “GIBSON” -“World’s Tallest Dog”/Guinness Record Book 2004-2010)
