This Feel Good Story comes out of Edinburgh, UK when Ron and Sharleen Gillies were stranded after their car accident with nobody to turn to.

According to BBC, the Gillies were driving home from Edinburgh to Cambridge when they got into a minor car accident, but it left their car undriveable. They were on their way to see their mother in her final hours.

The thought that there was no way they were going to make it to say a final goodbye to their mother began to flood their minds. And, that's when Dean Moore showed up.

Dean pulled over and asked them what they needed. The Gillies explained their situation, and he told them to hop in the car, no hesitation. Dean drove them the 200 miles to Mrs. Gillies home so they could say their goodbyes. Dean refused any offers of payment or anything, turned around, and drove the 200 miles back.

Mrs. Gillies passed away the next day. Ron shared his gratitude when he explained, "This happened on the Sunday, and she died on Monday. If it hadn't been for Dean there's a fair chance we would not have got there in time."
