Letter: Rock Creek fire victim gives thanks

There are many others who contributed to the fire relief and who provide ongoing support in the community deserving thanks writes Peri Best.

Recently resident in Grand Forks, a refugee from the Rock Creek fire, my miracle cat Mimi and I would like to express our gratitude to the amazingly kind and generous folks of this area.

I recently had an operation requiring a couple of weeks of home support on my return from hospital. I have no family near by so organizer supreme—Christy Luke—took on the job of organizing a support team.

My unending thanks to her plus Mike, Seija, Ted, Mary Ann, Sheila, Sonia, Elizabeth, Vivien, Rosemarie and Laurie. Thanks also to the Home Support women.

For help with the move—thanks first, for making it possible to Vivien, Sharon, Eden and Cliff and Jacqui at the Credit Union.

For their monumental efforts on the day, thanks to Ted and Dean, Jim, Bob and Trisha, Jill, Adelle, Martin and Seija.

Others I am grateful to are Jo at the Women’s Resource Centre, Deb and Ray for the walker, Kate and Adam, Lorraine, Della and Brian, Cathy and Patricia.

There are many others who contributed to the fire relief and who provide ongoing support in the community deserving thanks…here it is—thank you all.
