"He always makes me feel better."

Emmy K.

"There's the nicest guy that sits on the planter (box) in the mornings greeting people on the way to work. He's not panhandling; he's just making everyone's day start out a little brighter. He's on the planter near the crosswalk between the Joseph Smith Memorial Building and the Lion House — there's a crosswalk stoplight there directly across from the north Macy's entrance. He always makes me feel better."

A good husband

Brianna L.

"My sweet husband wanted to make a video and surprised me while I was shopping on Saturday with my son! He cleaned the whole house, not just picked up but he tackled piles that had been there for almost a year!"
