Renee Veltema of Harbor House Ministries in Jenison wrote to tell me about Cody and Bob. Cody attends the Ottawa County center for people with physical and cognitive impairments on weekdays. And he loves big trucks.

A few months ago, Bob came driving by in his Republic Services garbage truck. Cody was enamored with the truck, so Bob took time to say 'hi.' During another stop, Bob brought Cody a few gifts from Republic Services, like a hat and sweatshirt.

Now, it's a routine. Whenever Bob sees Cody at Harbor House, he takes time to spend a few moments with his new friend.

Renee writes, "You cannot imagine the joy this brought to Cody. This is going above and beyond for sure." It sure is, Renee. Bob and Cody get today's One Good Thing.

If you have a One Good Thing you'd like to submit - someone or something that makes West Michigan a good place to live - email me at
