Reunion of a lifetime


---- — Darryl Nelson always wanted to meet Sterling Sokolski.

But for 13 years, he knew little about the girl whose life he saved outside an East Bay business where he worked. That is, until the pair reunited last week.

"I was pushed, I was pushed," Darryl Nelson said about taking a closer look at the accident scene outside his East Bay business, where he found a then-3-year-old Sterling in her car seat with severe injuries. Nelson reunited with Sterling and her mother, Sonya Reimer on Nov. 19.
