The couple didn’t post the note to sleuth out who might have written it. “It was more to say, ‘Thank you,’ to whoever — not even knowing if it would ever find them,” Aaron said. “It was just a really kind thing for them to do.”

It might have been an EMT who moved the car and wrote the note, Nora noted. “Even if was just somebody doing their job,” she said, “it’s really, really meaningful.”

Because Aaron was driving on New Brighton Boulevard, “not a quiet street, by any means,” Nora is thankful that no one was hurt. She wonders if he happened to be stopped at a light. “Most people would just honk and drive around,” she said.

Aaron himself is “patient and kind even with strangers,” a trait that came long before the cancer, Nora said. “That is something he would do for somebody else,” she said. “He deserves such a thing to happen to him.”
