Heartwarming Holiday Tale

The holidays are about more than just presents and decorations. They are about being a good person and helping someone in need. Our brother Jeff is a dog lover extraordinaire and a real life Santa. Just before Christmas, during these freezing temperatures, an elderly neighbor (a disabled veteran) managed to wheel himself over to Jeff’s house. He and his wife were in dire straits because they had no running water and their pipes had been frozen for days. Jeff could have offered to call a plumber, but in the true spirit of the holidays, he offered his help. He gathered his tools and another neighbor and went to work. Instead of a chimney, Jeff had to go down a deep crawl space and fix the problem. The elderly couple were beyond grateful. Sometimes Santa wears a tool belt instead of his red velvet coat.
