Need to say thank you to so many in Castlegar

I’ve been treated with compassion and kindness wherever I go.

Editor:

I feel compelled to write and publicly thank everyone concerned.

Since I’ve moved to this fair city over eight years ago, during which time I’ve aged and become handicapped, I’ve been treated with compassion and kindness wherever I go.

Firstly the Chamber of Commerce is very helpful with information when I need it. Also the Lions Club have been most helpful to me.

Then there’s the wonderful transit drivers who are patient and helpful to us seniors.

The home support staff are truly Angels of Mercy who have to drive from one end of the valley to another, often in inclement weather to minister to our needs.

I also would like to thank the library staff who have been most helpful, in bringing me books when I’m unable to do so. The cashiers, at businesses, who show patience and have a smile on their face when I have problems getting the change with my arthritic finger.

Since I began to use a walker, even young people have helped me get through a heavy outside door.

If I have missed mentioning anyone, I beg to be forgiven, but you know who you are and I am very grateful.
