A Helping Hand At A Picnic

I went for picnic with my dad, nan and illy (my elder brother) The sweet moment was over and it was really crowded. I was holding my dads hand and then my hand slipped. I stopped because I couldn't see him any more. I started to cry and a lady came up to me. she asked me my name and offered to help me find my dad. She sat with me for a hour, then we saw them. I hugged my dad so tight, I never Wanted to let go. Dad said "Thank You", I did too to her. I hope she knows that without her, I would have never had found my family.
