Letters to the Editor

LETTERS: Kindness appreciated

Editor:

I would like to express my family’s thanks to the people who stopped to help my mother when she tripped and fell in the crosswalk in White Rock on March 4.

My mum hit her face, chipped a tooth, cut her elbow and banged her hand. She was bruised, bleeding and shocked.

I especially wish to thank the lady named Nancy, who sat with my mum, bought her a cup of tea and then drove her home.

You would not give her your contact information because you did not wish to be thanked any further, but I cannot help but wish to say more.

We are all dependent upon the kindness of others at some point in our lives.

I am so grateful that it was someone as kind and giving as you were to my mother. Thank you, thank you so very much.

A. Bremner, Vancouver
