Thank you for helping two blind people to be together

Posted on Tue, Oct 9, 2012 at 3:23 PM

Thank you to all the amazing bus drivers that drive the 82, 87, 66, 10 and especially the 54 and 80... you folks, have made it possible for my fiancé who has very little navigational and blind cane skills and whose sight completely fails after dusk, to get across the HRM from East Dartmouth to Bedford, every day, since Sept 28th, he has been literally taken care of, by these amazing bus operators, I especially want to thank the drivers on the 80... You will know who you are, for you are very special to the both of us, you have made these almost two weeks bearable, if not enjoyable, amid some very stressful and frustrating times for the two of us, you make it possible for us to spend as much time as possible together, we spent almost eight months living 1,800km apart, we are getting married October 12th, I wish I knew who each of you are, who have helped my fiancé, I'd give each of you hug or a Tim card, to go get something special for yourselves, just to relax after a rough day driving us around this amazing city... but since I can't, this will have to do. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, to EACH and EVERY one of you, who have helped us. You have made dreams become reality. —The Two Lovestruck Blind-Caners
