Angels on this Coast

Editor:

I feel so fortunate to live in such a kind and caring community.

This year has been very difficult and the kindness and help from professionals, friends and family have helped so much. I’d just like to take a moment to thank some of the angels of the Coast.

Thank you to the hospice volunteers, to the palliative care nurses and the rest of the staff at Shorncliffe and to the nurses at St. Mary’s Hospital for the wonderful care of my partner Carol these past few months. And thank you to our doctor, Dr. Hourigan, for his kind and compassionate care also.

Another thank you to the nurses and staff at St. Mary’s for looking after me when I had a stroke while visiting Carol in April. Your quick action helped keep me from more serious damage or loss of life. And thank you to the amazing paramedics who helped get me to and back from Vancouver. You guys rock!

I also want to thank whoever found my pink LG Tebo cell phone and returned it to the Telus store in Gibsons in late April. I am so glad to have it back (and the information on it). It was one good thing that happened this spring and meant more than you can imagine. Thank you for caring.

Please support our local Hospice Society, with donations of time or money. They do incredibly important work and are much needed and appreciated.
