From Riley the lab’s family, a sainting for Sandy the mail carrier

13February 2021

Our USPS mail carrier, Sandy, is very deserving of recognition for excellent service and going up and above.

Sandy befriended our family dog, Riley, a people-friendly lab, a few years back. Riley routinely would go to the window when she heard the mail truck and want to go meet Sandy at the bottom of the driveway. We have an invisible fence so Sandy would throw a treat for Riley or come into the driveway and provide a nice belly rub to her.

Riley would stay attentive and watch Sandy complete her rounds in our cul-de-sac. If Riley was not out that day, Sandy might leave a treat in the mailbox, or if the packages were too large for the mailbox, bring mail to the door with a treat for Riley attached.

We recently had to say goodbye to Riley, so we gave Sandy our remaining box of dog treats for other dogs along her route. We then received a nice “thinking of you” card about Riley from Sandy. Very thoughtful.

Please SAINT Sandy. USPS should be proud to have Sandy as an employee,

I was checking out groceries at the Mahtomedi’s Aldi’s, reached  for my purse to pay and it wasn’t there. I panicked for a second, then realized that it was probably in my car and headed out the door.

A  very nice lady in back called out that she would “cover” me. I assumed she meant she would watch my  purchases until I got back.

I retrieved my purse from the car floor and headed back inside. Very Nice Lady was watching over my stuff, even offered to help me carry out and left when I said I could handle it. I went to the cashier to pay and the cashier said it had already been paid.

Apparently when the Lady said she would “cover me,” she meant that she would pay, not guard my stuff.

I  want to give a give a shout-out to Very Nice Lady for her kindness and  generosity. I will contribute the money to the Mahtomedi food shelf.

A First-Class Sainted goes out to Jim, our mailman in Merriam Park.

Like Cara before him, Jim is tireless in bringing our mail in the worst weather.

I would like to saint the Twin Cities Ortho Center, especially Dr. Owen O’Neill and his team, for the care I received while recently undergoing a surgical procedure at their Eagan surgery facility.

In a world of push and shove and with all the big conglomerates and HMOs, it’s easy to feel like you’ve been lost in the crowd. These people are truly focused on you as an individual with your individual needs.

They deserve to be publicly recognized for what they do.

Their professionalism, compassion and care do not go unnoticed.

Beyond Doctor O’Neill and the nursing staff, I’d like to name a few of the other people who make this happen: Mitch Peterka, Ann S. and Excel nurse Sandy Hubbard, who let it be known that I could call her anytime with questions or concerns.

Thank you all for turning my stay into such a positive experience.
