During the recent snowstorm, Mulberry Chief of Police Shannon Gregory, his men and his wife went far beyond the call of duty. I had no electricity and no phone and, due to my health problems, was unable to seek help and unable to start a fire in the fireplace or feed or water my outside dogs. My cousin notified the Mulberry Police Department of the situation as she was unable to reach me and asked them to check on me.

Shannon Gregory and wife Angie came and started a fire in the fireplace, carried in wood, fed the dogs, emptied my freezer into an ice chest and buried it in the snow and attended to my needs. They came twice a day for three days, eventually moving me to my cousin’s house until electricity came back on. They then came with their men and moved me home.

They are truly caring people and I will be eternally grateful for their help as I am an 83-year-old woman with no husband, no children or siblings to look after me. I do have hired help every day. They were unable to reach me because of the weather. I am blind and in a wheelchair. I was at their mercy and they went beyond the call of duty to take care of my needs.

Thank you Chief Shannon Gregory and wife Angie and your men.
