Every once in a while you read these stories about people that go above and beyond to help other people get through a tough time. Unfortunately, these types of stories are grossly under reported or the people that do these kinds of good deeds don’t want media attention.
Enter Tyler Lewis. Lewis heard about 48 year old Larry Kester, who was stabbed several times on May 7 while driving a San Bernardino County transit bus. Robert Johnson, 33, was charged in his murder.
Larry Kester left behind a wife and six kids. Tyler Lewis took action. Lewis called on local businesses to donate materials for the Kester family home, he called on friends who in turn called on friends to volunteer. Tyler even got help from sailors stationed in San Diego.
Home Depot donated plants and a sprinkler system. Wal-Mart donated a swing set for the kids.
Lewis organized a team of volunteers that went to the Kester home and began a renovation of the house and yard with the hope of making life a bit easier for a family going through a tough time.
We here at BrokenCountry.com just wanted to say thank you to Tyler Lewis and everyone else that is trying to help a family get through a tough time and brought smiles to a lot of faces including ours. JD
