How fortunate I feel to live in this community.

During the past four months, I have been hospitalized for surgery twice at Peace Arch Hospital.

I regularly hear complaints of long wait times, etc.

However, I feel compelled to compliment the staff for their amazing care – from the nurses, doctors, X-ray technicians, physiotherapists and cheerful porters to support staff. My sincere thanks.

Whilst I hope I don’t have to see you all again in the near future, it is very comforting to know you are there.

We are indeed very lucky to have such a wonderful facility in our neighbourhood. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.

Barb Maguire, White Rock

I want to thank the wonderful, kind people who helped me when I had a terrible fall on Sept. 26 at 148 Street and 20 Avenue on my way home from the swimming pool.

To the off-duty fireman who phoned my home, the young man who phoned for an ambulance, the off-duty nurse and numerous other people who came to help me: I am sorry I do not remember your names, but you know who you are. Your kind words of encouragement helped to keep me calm until the ambulance arrived.

Thanks also to the paramedics and ER staff.
