Cheers: To Cole and his staff at Weathershield Roofing. I called at 7:30 the morning of the big hail storm. By 9 a.m., Cole was checking the roofs on both of my properties and made necessary repairs. I called again this week after wind did more damage, and additional patches were made to save me from interior damage after all the rain.
June Hoffman, Fort Worth
Cheers: To North Richland Hills for planning to post “In God We Trust” in the new building. Our nation’s founders acknowledged the Almighty, Creator God, and America became, grew and prospered (enabling you to do so) until we began pushing God out of our lives. And we have gone downhill ever since.
David Sagen, Fort Worth
Cheers: To the school crossing guard at Walker Creek Elementary School in North Richland Hills, near the North Richland Hills Library. This fine gentleman looks closely after each child, speaks to them as they cross and waves to each parent and passerby. Everyone gets a friendly greeting.
North Richland Hills
Cheers: To the family who paid for my waffle breakfast at Denny’s at U.S. 287 and Sublett Road in south Arlington. What a pleasant surprise! You really made my birthday extra special. May your lives truly be blessed, as you blessed mind.
E.J. Skinner, Mansfield
Cheers: To the police officer in downtown Fort Worth who paid for my gas after I had a terrible day and also forgot my wallet at home so I didn’t have gas to get home. Police officers are not what we make them out to be. Thank you so much, Officer, God bless you!
Katelyn Byrd, Burleson
Cheers: To the kind gentleman who paid for lunch for my friend and me on a recent Sunday at the Mexican Inn on East Lancaster Avenue. Wonderful to know that in this crazy world there are people who do kind things for perfect strangers.
Cheers: To the wonderful man who paid for my grandsons’ breakfast at the 7-Eleven off Boat Club Road. It made their day. You are an angel. My grandsons said they would pay it forward.
Tonie York, Fort Worth
Cheers: To Officer J.L. Norman and his partner for their kindness and support in locating my vehicle, which had been accidentally towed in a “mistaken identity” situation. They were very professional and encouraging throughout the ordeal. What wonderful representatives of the Fort Worth Police Department.
Linda Smith, Fort Worth
Jeers: To America’s corn farmers. If corn-based ethanol is such a great fuel, why aren’t they using it in their tractors?
William J. Beck, Euless
Cheers: To Paul and Michael at Albertsons for making it possible for Trinity Episcopal Church to help 20 families have a wonderful Easter celebration. They helped me get this celebration together. This Alberstons store is always helpful. Great store and people who work there.

Cheers: To the three people who helped me out of a jam when my car was stuck on South Collins Street: Ebenezer, who jumped the battery, and Evan Jones and another young man who pushed my car off busy Collins Street. I’ll pay it forward!
R.G. Horstman, Arlington
Cheers: To the Discount Tire Store on Camp Bowie Boulevard! Cheers for playing Christian music station KLTY/94.9 FM as the chosen music station in the store! And cheers to Mark and his crew for replacing my blown-out tire, even though the store was technically “closed”!
Lisa M. Juran Fort Worth
Cheers: To the family who paid for my dinner on March 18 at Chili’s restaurant in Burleson. I was shocked and stunned that this happened to me. I’ll definitely pay it forward. May God bless your family and keep you safe.

Ruth A. Malone,
Cheers: To Danny Rangel from Matco Heat and Air on Airport Freeway for leading the charge to help us rescue a young cat stuck in the wall of our business. That cat owes you one of its nine lives.
Karen Eklof, Weatherford
Cheers: To Steven Tucker and his great crew with Mid-Cities Builders Inc. for the excellent, prompt and professional job they did on my house. I’d gladly give the highest recommendation to anyone needing any work done to a home, large or small. The electrician they employ, C.D., is the best! Thanks to all.
Alice A. Brotherton,
Cheers: To Fort Worth school district morning bus driver No. 578 for taking such good care of the students riding the bus during a tornado warning. And cheers to the Valero service station on Bryant Irvin Road for allowing the bus driver and students to take shelter in the store and feeding them donuts to calm them down. I’m so thankful for people like you watching over my son.
Cheers: To Scooby, adopted from Humane Society of North Texas, who gave us unconditional love for nearly 14 years; Dr. Lozzi, Suzanne and staff at Wedgwood Animal Hospital for their love and care; Texas Veterinary Ophthalmology; Fort Worth Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Hospital, and to Courtney who held Scooby on her lap during his last afternoon.

Jack and Shirley Gore,
Cheers: To our guardian angel, Donna, who found my mom wandering on Arkansas Lane, tried to rouse the employees at the senior center and then called police. We’re ever so grateful to her for stopping. Jeers to the senior center for not knowing she was gone, despite having a door alarm. Double jeers for forcing her to move immediately.
Carol May, Millsap
Cheers: To the beautiful and honest young woman who stayed around after her car accidentally rolled into mine. I was in the building, and she came in to get me.
Jeers: To the Christian woman who broke into my storage shed at Uncle Bob’s Storage on the Denton Highway. Please return the picture of Jesus that my mother gave me before she died, a framed poem titled Footprints and my three paintings signed “Tims.”
Fran M. Tims,
North Richland Hills
Cheers: To the lady who paid for my sandwich at the Subway restaurant in Granbury after attending Cowboy Church. When I started to pay, I was told that it was already paid for. I assumed it was the lady ahead of me in line. So I rushed to the door and spotted her in her vehicle. I got her attention and a huge smile when I thanked her.
Cheers: To the anonymous angel who paid for my breakfast at Swiss Pastry Shop on Vickery Boulevard on March 12. You made my week. God bless. I’ll pay it forward.
Alice L. Borden,
Cheers: To Marcus Jordan of Havertys furniture store. He was so patient, even though I changed my mind twice about a new mattress. Cheers also to Havertys’ delivery men, LBJ and another Marcus. LBJ helped me unpin my bedskirt from the old box springs and then attach it to the new one. Havertys hires great people.
Cheers: To the first responders who came when I discovered my wife comatose. The police, firefighters and emergency medical personnel were there in very short order and no doubt saved her life. Thanks to God for her continuing recovery.
