Dr Darla D., has gone above and beyond to do things for us (picking up all our prescriptions and groceries), our neighbor who was ill, people in the Carolina Forest area, international students who came to work in Myrtle Beach during the normal tourist season only to have no jobs when everything shut down and have no money for food, as well as other individuals she has felt lead to do something for them in various ways sometimes on short notice.  She and her daughters have also done things like wash the feet of homeless and provide clean socks.  I used to help when she was helping with filling backpacks for children at Waccamaw School before COVID happened.  Frankly I don’t know how she does it along with all her work responsibilities.  I do know that sometimes she has very little sleep while working out solutions to problems brought on for everyone during this corona virus outbreak!  She has always been a person willing to sacrifice for others without expecting anything in return.  I love her dearly and am so proud of her accomplishments.

I am honored to know Mary Wall.  Normally busy keeping things lively and well for the members and kids in the aquatics programs at the Georgetown County YMCA, the lock down left her with excess energy and exuberance and a profound need to help people less fortunate.  She made an appeal on Facebook. She and her husband Timmy wanted to purchase and deliver food for families in need and she just needed to know who these needy families are and if anyone wanted to join her in this mission.  And then it started.  Within hours, many of Mary’s friends joined her “Covid-19 Shop and Delivery Team,” and many more made donations!  In less than a week the team has delivered food to over 70 families, each family having their own heartbreaking story and each profoundly grateful for their help.  And this is just the beginning for Mary’s passion as word is spreading.  When I commented on her goodness, Mary said,  “I just always think it is better to give than receive and show people love always and forever. ”  Definitely not a quiet person by nature, she truly is a person who’s ACTIONS are way LOUDER than her words.  You can see Mary’s progress on feeding families in Georgetown on her Facebook page.

On the morning of April 7,2020 my wife experienced some complex medical issues and found it extremely painful to walk. I took her to the Doctor who gave her some pain pills. On the way back I bought her a walker to try and get around with. When I got home with her it was hard to get her out of the car as any movement caused her pain. my neighbor Chris came to the rescue and helped me get the wife inside. we have a sunken living room. Chris took measurements and soon returned with a custom made ramp that my wife could use with her walker so she could get around the house. I offered to pay Chris for his help and the ramp. He would not take anything saying that is what neighbors do. Help others.

We received  a drawing in the mail the other day from a young man in our church.  The drawing was a stick man with his arms spread wide with these words”He’s got the whole world in his hands.” I found out who his parents were and sent his Mom a message, that we had received the sweetest note from her son.  She said his goal is to send everyone in our church one to “put a smile on their face.” His name is Caden W.
