For most of us, traveling is a nightmare, especially when traveling by plane. For one man who was flying Southwest this week, it was a godsend.
Sources have shared this moving story of a grandfather who was trying to get to his gate at the airport so he could say goodbye to his 3-year old grandson. The poor boy was brutally body-slammed by his daughter’s live-in boyfriend and the doctors were preparing to take him off life support. The story goes that this poor, grieving man struggled through the airport security, despite arriving early, with none of the TSA agents offering him assistance in making his flight. After he finally made it through security, he ran for his Southwest gate, in only his socks, hoping to make it in time to board. He was 12 minutes late.
Here’s where we expected the worst for this man, but ended up remembering that there are still decent people in the world. According to the man’s wife, who shared the story with sources, when her husband arrived at the gate, he was informed that the pilot knew about his loss and had held the plane for him so that he could make it to see his grandson. As the man boarded, he was greeted by the pilot, who said to him, “They can’t go anywhere without me and I wasn’t going anywhere without you. Now relax. We’ll get you there. And again, I’m so sorry.”
When asked to comment on the story, a Southwest rep said they were “proud” of their pilot and stood behind his decision.
Amazing. Just when you’re sure the world has given up on compassion for others, you hear a story like that.
We send our condolences out to this poor man who lost his grandson and our thanks to to pilot who gave the man the chance to spend those precious last moments with him.Read More

Alan and Jan’s love story is special and unique.
They met at Regis University in 1988 where they both were completing their degrees. From their first coffee date to their 21st wedding anniversary, Alan and Jan shared an indescribable connection that would last a lifetime.
“Our love was an exception,” said Jan. “We were always able to work out any issues and go to bed happy – I truly feel blessed to have known this kind of love.”
After their first year of marriage, the couple started their own computer company, which allowed them to start saving for their future. The company continued to thrive into the early 2000’s. The success of their company brought numerous business trips around the country, allowing the couple to attain thousands of frequent flyer miles, which they agreed to save and use for personal travel upon their 25th wedding anniversary.
But in 2008, Alan passed away from a sudden lung aneurism at the age of 51, just three years short of their 25th anniversary and plans to travel the world together. The couple’s frequent flyer miles sat untouched for several years until one morning in December when fate intervened and showed Jan what to do with them.
“It was an odd morning to begin with,” said Jan. “My dog, Thunder, woke me up earlier than usual to go to the bathroom, so I decided to turn on the local news, something that I NEVER do in the mornings, for some background noise.”
When Jan turned on the television, the 7NEWS morning broadcaster appeared and eagerly asked viewers to call in and donated their unused frequent flyer miles to help Make-A-Wish Colorado wish kids.
“It was perfect timing,” said Jan. “So I dialed the number, spoke to a Make-A-Wish volunteer and instantly broke down into tears. These airline miles were so important to Alan and me that it was very emotional for me to be donating them all to charity because it truly meant that we would never be using them together as planned.”
After collecting herself, Jan announced to the volunteer that she wanted to donate 323,083 airline miles.
“Alan and I were saving these frequent flyer miles for our future,” said Jan. “But, donating them was the best decision I’ve ever made because now kids and their families will be able to fly to their wish destinations and create lasting memories together.”
Jan is reminded of Alan’s kindhearted spirit every day and knows that he supports her decision to donate the airline miles to Make-A-Wish Colorado.
