We would like to share the story and our heartfelt thanks for the generous and kind assistance given to our daughter, Emily, on Saturday, December 8, along Interstate 80, by your Service Manager, Mr. Bill Toyne. Emily hit a patch of ice on I-80 westbound during the afternoon blizzard. She spun twice and bounced into the median just east of Geneseo, Il. She called home immediately and said that Mr. Toyne had stopped to inquire about her condition and safety as well as calling the State Patrol. His additional offer of help was appreciated but not anticipated at that time.
When she was unable to retrieve her car that evening and forced to stay overnight in Geneseo, his gracious offer of help meant that she enjoyed a comfortable stay and no longer worried about her belongings and computer. The additional driving from his home in Davenport, with his wife, and then from motel to car to motel for Emily was truly a heavenly gift in the blizzard.
Her heart was warmed by Mr. Toyne's care and concern and our minds were relieved at the thought of the Good Samaritan along the Illinois highway.
