Letter: Incredible hospitality

To the Editor:

I just wanted to take a moment to recognize a small community with huge heart – the village of Kaneville.

My vehicle ended up with a flat tire as my son and I entered Kaneville on our way home Feb. 8. Two extremely kind gentlemen tried to help us put on the spare tire. They ended up wet and dirty in the process, just to find the spare unusable (but they tried).

I had to wait for my brother to come pick us up with his trailer, but – in the meantime – my son and I sat in our Envoy. There were so many people that stopped and asked if we could use some help. 

One woman offered her business driveway to park our vehicle in; a young mother said if we needed anything we could go to her house. The women at the bank were kind, as was the man at the town hall.

This village made a stressful experience much more bearable, and actually quite eye opening to my son and me.

This community should be proud of the character of its residents. It was such a great example of the charity and kindness of small-town America. Thank you, Kaneville, for your incredible hospitality.
