EDITORIAL: Saying thank-you after a time of need

There are no flowers or cards of thanks that can express how deeply grateful my husband and I are for the outpouring of concern, help, kindness and yes, even love, that our neighbours in our little corner of Fairwinds (Renwick Place and Rockhampton Road) gave us when my husband suffered a heart attack on the morning of June 12.

There are no flowers or cards of thanks that can express how deeply grateful my husband and I are for the outpouring of concern, help, kindness and yes, even love, that our neighbours in our little corner of Fairwinds (Renwick Place and Rockhampton Road) gave us when my husband suffered a heart attack on the morning of June 12.

As if by magic, while waiting for the ambulance, our very dear neighbours answered our call for help, rushing in to tend to our very worried and confused dog, contacting another good neighbour and friend who was willing to look after him at a moment’s notice, watering the garden, securing the house and offering us so much kindness we are overwhelmed with gratitude.

As well, thank you to Jean and Lyn at the Nanoose Library and cashier Brenda at Thrifty’s Parksville who also offered so much care and support and a wee bit of humour too to lighten our load.

They are all superheroes to us and we are so grateful.
