Lynette Scribner recently shared a story on Facebook of an amazing encounter she had on an Alaska Airlines flight. Timothy Cook was flying home after visiting his sister. Cook, who is blind and deaf, lives at Brookdale Senior Living facility in Portland.
Other passengers on the flight went out of their way to help make Cook comfortable. A man gave Cook the aisle seat as well as helped him put creamer in his coffee but they had a very hard time communicating. Cook can only communicate with ASL (American Sign Language).
