Thanks for help during fall

Thanks to everyone who stopped and helped me after falling in front of Dolly’s Home Hardware store in Qualicum Beach.

It is with gratitude and humility that I wish to thank everyone who stopped and helped me after falling in front of Dolly’s Home Hardware store in Qualicum Beach.

On Monday, Aug. 3, I was exiting the store and as I stepped off the sidewalk/curb and into the angled parking space where my truck was parked, I fell and sustained major injuries to my right arm. Somehow I had wedged myself partially under my truck and was in a very unsafe place.

I wish to say thank-you to the paramedics, to the young lady who called 911 and to the gentleman who took charge of the area until the ambulance arrived.

Though I was in and out of consciousness, I knew you were standing behind me and keeping me safe. Angels are brought into our lives when we most need them and for that moment in time, you were my angel. I do hope you read this and know how very grateful I am for taking the time to care.
