The other day, Joan Nevin’s mother headed from Westport to Washington, DC, to see her granddaughter dance at the Kennedy Center. Joan usually accompanies her mother, but was away this time.
In Stamford, Joan’s mother got on the wrong train. Instead of Amtrak for Union Station, she boarded Metro-North to Grand Central.
Linda Hughes and Laura Wang — 2 Westport women on the same train — realized Joan’s mother did not know how to take the subway shuttle to Penn Station to catch Amtrak.
They took the time — and her mother’s suitcase! — and escorted her (“okay, they all ran!” Joan says) to the crosstown shuttle.
Linda and Laura stayed with her all the way — even making sure she got on the correct train.
“They gave their time, support and energy to my mother, for which we are immensely grateful,” Joan says.
“Without their help, she would have missed her very important event. Warmest thanks to Linda and Laura for their selflessness and kindness.”
“06880” could not put it any better. Thank you, Linda and Laura — and Joan, for sharing this inspiring story.
