‘Thank you’ to Fayette County’s finest


Dear Editor,

I am writing this letter regarding a situation that happened to me and my husband a couple of weeks ago. Law enforcement these days are always getting a bad rap. We wanted you to know there are good officers and we met two of Fayette County’s finest.

On Aug. 11 at about 4:30 p.m., an elderly woman came to our home. She was lost, disoriented, and in need of a restroom. To make a long story short, this wonderful woman needed help getting back home.

My husband called the sheriff’s office and they sent Deputy Brown out to aid in the situation. He began speaking with her trying to find out where she lived. Then Deputy Southward arrived and after an hour-and-a-half of careful conversation, they finally located a family member, her granddaughter. Once gaining this information, the deputies transported her to the sheriff’s office where she waited three hours for her granddaughter to arrive.

A little later, Deputy Brown and the family arrived to retrieve her car and take her back home. These two deputies were wonderful to say the least. Never once was she made to feel uncomfortable or like she didn’t know what she was doing. They showed nothing but respect and compassion for this elderly woman and we had nothing but admiration for their behavior.

Now, if you knew where we lived, you would ask how did this woman arrive or even select our house. I really feel that God was watching over her and he sent her to us so we could help her. Again, thank you deputies for a job well done!

Charles (Ed) and Carol West
