City’s loss is hospice’s gain

Editor:

As a resident of White Rock, I want to say to Catherine Ferguson a very large “thank you.”

Editor:

In July we had a sickness in our home in White Rock.

Lo and behold, our mayor, Catherine Ferguson, gave us the honour of a surprise visit to see if we were OK, or needed any assistance.

During the visit, Catherine noticed our blackberry bushes in the backyard and asked if we would mind if she picked some. Within the next few days, her husband arrived with a blackberry pie she baked for our family.

How she was able to find the time in her busy schedule to do this kind deed for us is truly amazing indeed.

Our discussion at our home gave us the strong feeling that Catherine was indeed “a mayor of the people,” always accessible, connected with the citizens of White Rock and one who has great pride in the city she so well represents.

We will certainly miss her integrity as mayor, and wish her all the best in her position with the hospice, for which she will be well suited in working with those in need.

Dick & Jane Butler, White Rock
