LETTER: Public’s response to fall was uplifting

Back in October, I had a rather sudden “trip” while I was crossing the street, near Primrose Street in Qualicum Beach. It happened when my shoe caught the top edge of the sidewalk I was trying to walk onto, resulting in a face plant.

Rather unforgiving!

This letter is meant to express my gratitude to the people in Qualicum Beach who came to my rescue and helped me out. Almost immediately, I found three people standing around me, to help me to my feet and guide me to a bench nearby so I could sit down. What a fabulous surprise!

I want to especially thank the three people who stood beside me and aided me in my time of need. I also want to be sure to thank the lady who walked me down to Iris Opticians so that I could repair my glasses, and also to the lady who walked me up to my doctor’s office to get checked out.

Kindly accept my sincere thanks and appreciation to you all.
