Opinion Letters David Patel a kind soul indeed

I was saddened to hear of the death of Dipakkumar “David” Patel former owner of Relax Inn on Christmas Day. Over the past thirty years of working in the Environmental Health Section for the Macon County Public Health Center, I have worked with numerous individuals especially in the food and lodging industry. In my encounters, David Patel could easily be considered the most compliant new owner. From my initial visit to his business in May 2012, he impressed upon me that he was a man of his word (even though I didn’t know him) to just trust him. Over the last one year and seven months he held true to his word.

In addition, David Patel was a very compassionate man for the less fortunate regardless of the need. He supported and participated in the Open Door Ministry sponsored by the United Methodist Church in Macon County.

I am so thankful for my last conversation with David just 14 days prior his death. He again shared his concern for the less fortunate and he knew that his purpose in life was helping others. My response to him was “You are a kind soul David”... indeed a kind soul.
