If you have the opportunity to repay someone who cares about you, this is an opportunity not to be missed. A group of Canadian firefighters took the opportunity to show their gratitude to a lovely lady who had shown her love through her actions.
68-year-old Diane Duke, a cafeteria cook, brought in leftovers every Friday for 13 years at the Regina Fire Station in Saskatchewan, Canada.
Then one day the firefighters came back and gave back.
Chris Prohar takes the opportunity to pay off her debt
Regina firefighter Chris Prohar, who works part-time for a roofing company, was working on a house across from Diane’s house. Her son, Chris Duke, went over to get an estimate for his parents’ roof. When Prohar realized who Chris’ mother was, he had an idea.
Prohar assembled a group of firefighters to do the roofing work for free, and Dynamic Roofing and Kenroc helped by donating materials.
“She’s an incredible woman,” said Chris sadi. “She has been taking care of us for so long now, we are thinking of her family and it is our pleasure to take care of her.”

Duke didn’t just drop off the food. She gave the firefighters kisses and hugs and listened to them talk. Some of the firefighters even changed shifts or waited after their shift to see them. But after she retired to care for her ailing husband Lorne, who has post-polio syndrome, she stopped visiting weekly.
“I was shocked but so happy,” Diane told TODAY. “I brought them food from the goodness of my heart and never expected anything in return.”
The canopy was an opportunity to celebrate a wonderful lady
Chris Duke was touched by all the stories he heard about his mother and was happy to help organize the surprise. He told his mother that he needed her to organize a meeting at his office the day the roof was installed. Instead, she had food for the firefighters.
“As I listened to the stories of these guys, I realized how much they touched everyone,” her son said.
After three hours of getting a new roof on the house, everyone sat down and ate together.
All great deeds are eventually recognized. Remain the best version of yourself and live in service to others. It will pay off in ways you can’t even imagine.
