Medical help greatly appreciated

Wife grateful for all of the help her husband received

To the editor:

I would like to submit a letter of special thanks to all the people that came to my husband’s help on Aug. 29 when he stepped into a wasp nest and got stung repeatedly.

We didn’t know he was allergic, but sure found out fast.

If it wasn’t for my quick acting neighbours (Vito Burtini, Roy Allan and Diana Smith), the first responder (George Tyler) of Watch Lake-Green Lake Volunteer Fire Department, the paramedic from 100 Mile Ambulance Services (Wolfgang Pessler) and the kind ambulance driver, I truly don’t know what I would have done.

They were all so helpful and supportive.

We live in Surrey, and we probably got faster and better care up there. We’d probably still be sitting in the emergency room.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
