Small town people are there when needed

Special thanks to those whoa helped after motorhome burned to the ground

On Jan. 9, my motorhome burned to the ground on the Emory Creek Bridge.

Ambulance, RCMP and fire department were on site very quickly. I want to thank the ambulance attendants for checking me over and allowing me to stay at the site.

Special thanks to Const. R. Tumbus who stayed with me until we were allowed to leave, giving me advice and answering any questions I had. He was very kind and compassionate.

Also, thank you to Elaine and Sue from Boston Bar, who let me and my little dog keep warm in their vehicle.

They did a lot to help me get over the trauma of the accident.

Once again, small town people are there for you when you need someone.

Vivian Edwards,
