Letter: Remembering Don Franklin

Tony Jessee writes:
I remember that in 1971 I was on my way to work, and my old car broke down. I hitched a ride to work, then on my lunch break I walked down the street to Don's car lot.

I told him what had happened and that I was in need of a car to get back and forth to work. He said he would help me, and got me a car to drive. I said that I had no money but would return the next day and pay him. He said that would be ok. I will always remember how kind and helpful he was to me.
