Undying gratitude for a brave and compassionate act was expressed lately by a Glade couple. Alex and Lorna Sherstobitoff formally and publicly furthered their thanks to Chris O'Gorman for saving Alex's life on June 10.

"Chris is a very brave man," states the brief notice brought in on June 12. "All he had was a canoe and a piece of driftwood to paddle with, but he rescued me from drowning.

"We also thank the RCMP and Search and Rescue for job well done," the notice concludes. "Again, thank you very much, Chris."
