I have been writing this letter in my head for awhile. Its main purpose is to thank Officer Phillip Cofield for coming to my rescue when I had a freak accident on Enota Drive recently.

I will not recount the details as that would take much space. And in fact, nobody could figure out what and how it happened. I lost control of my vehicle and hit the curb and this destroyed my right front tire.

I put on my emergency lights and bumped ahead to the turn lane of the Senior Community on Enota. To my good fortune, Officer Cofield saw me and turned around, his car lights flashing and parked behind me. He was so kind and caring and resolved the problem very quickly. I was not physically hurt but was somewhat in shock.

Officer Cofield went beyond the proverbial extra mile and he deserves special recognition and commendation. From me and God; blessings in abundance. Kindness is always rewarded.
