I had to do a pick up and delivery in Hilton Head SC on Thursday. My wife rode with me in the rollback and as we came back down I-95 into Georgia from SC we both needed to use the facilities at the Welcome Station.
Since we were in a truck, we parked with the campers and big trucks. She has difficulty walking due to the MS but said she could do it. (she is a pretty stubborn ole girl)
About 3/4 of the way to the building, it became evident that this was a bad move, that she was 'out of gas' and could barely make it. We got to the building and to the handicap rest room. There were three ladies in attendance at the Welcome station and I asked one of them for the key. She told me it was occupied, but the lady inside should be right out. We took a place in line and I ran to the men's room. While I was there, the lady in charge came over and helped Ms Carol open the door and get inside the facility. She asked if she could help her further and offered to wait so she could open the door again for her.
When I returned I asked if it was possible to circle the building and pick Ms C up at the curb. Now I did not know she and Ms C had become friends so quickly. The lady told me there was not way to get around there, but if I needed some exercise (all the while smiling at me) she could help out by loaning me a wheelchair...the Lord smiled at me from the face a lovely black lady.
I was very grateful as was Ms C because there was no way she could have walked all the way back to the truck.

So, if you are traveling south on I-95 and get to the Georgia line Welcome Center around noon, stop in and say hello to some of the nicest, kindest, most compassionate ladies you will ever meet.

Now this Welcome Center is busy as a fire ant bed in a cow pasture, but these ladies took the time to help a lady who really needed it. Thank you ma'm(s) You are a credit to Georgia and Southern Hospitality



and thats what I like about the South

This is a Good Post. You should send a copy to the GA state tourism board.
