Man Drives Couple 400 Miles To Visit Their Dying Mother
March 19, 2019
A man made a 400-mile detour to help a couple pay a last visit to their dying mother.
Husband and wife Ron, 77, and Sharleen Gillies, 58, were driving from Edinburgh to Cambridge to say their final goodbyes to Sharleen's mother before she passed away when they had a minor traffic accident.
Dean Moore, who had never met the couple, saw them on the side of the road and, hearing Sharleen's mother was in her final hours, drove them 200 miles in time to say goodbye.
"I just can't put into words what that lad did for us, " Ron told the Gazette.
"This happened on the Sunday and she died the next day, she died on Monday - if it hadn't been for Dean there's a fair chance we would have not got there in time. People get awards for various things and they are just doing their job, whereas this lad, it wasn't his job, he didn't know us from Adam."

After their visit, Dean turned around and drove the 200 miles back, refusing all offers of payment.
"I drove them down, it took about four hours, got there before midnight, popped in for a wee then turned round and came straight back," Dean said.
"I was knackered at work the next day."
Ron called Dean afterwards to thank him, but Dean said it was just what anyone else would have done.
"They were stuck in a bad situation, I just made it a little better," he said.
