I can't tell you how glad that I am that you will be able to stop using your manual chair when out. Yes, I can see the potential for you being able to be dropped off places.
Not only is that great for you, but it is really good for whomever drops you. And, it means that when they don't have hours or the day to devote, they may well have the time it takes to drop you, than later pick you up.
What a nice person this man that you know is! Not only was this a very nice thing to do, but that he's continuing on to eventually get you a van that you can drive...well, he's just very special in how he wants to help, and how committed he is to it.
I'm glad that your brother and family are there after the record breaking heat. It sounds like they are going to take a fun family road trip.
Hooray, and congratulations on the van! It's strange how, when, and where, things come from. I'm thrilled for you!
Love All Life; Thank You For Posting! :)
