On Jan. 26, at about 5 p.m. at Cody’s Roadhouse Grill in Bradenton, a very nice lady turned my wallet over to the waitstaff. I had left it in the restroom. I didn’t get to meet her and thank her, so I’d like to do that now. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Now I have 10 good deeds to do to pay it forward. Thank you again. – Susan Bondy, Bradenton
• I would like to thank Daniel Ponton, president of Healthy Home of Sarasota located in Bradenton, for the service and cleaning of my TriStar Vacuum Cleaning System. He also refused to charge me for the needed replacement parts. Getting service like that is so very rare these days and I truly appreciate it. I have been a TriStar owner since 1989 and I honestly can’t imagine trying to keep my home clean without it. – Barbara Hill, Bradenton
• Recently a co-worker needed an emergency extraction of a wisdom tooth before leaving on an unexpected trip to Germany. As always, I recommended Scott Maloney. Unfortunately, his schedule was full for the day and he referred my co-worker to another dentist in Bradenton who said a dental surgeon would be required and that no one would be available for two days. We went to the Palmetto Dental Center, arriving at about 4:30 p.m. and personally explained the circumstances. Dr. Maloney and his staff stayed past their regular office hours to extract the tooth.
I will continue to refer friends to Dr. Maloney, not only as a very competent dentist but also as a compassionate person. – Gloria Lester, Palmetto
