I would like to give dozens of roses to all those people that had a hand in helping to save my father’s life.

He was at Saturday night’s Stamps game when he felt faint.

One of the first people to check his condition was William Lethbridge.

When he detected only a slight pulse he sprang into action. He organized the help needed.

Someone was sent to grab the AED and to call for the ambulance. Also assisting was Willy Devuyst, a volunteer first responder and a friend of my mother’s, Marnie Brenner, who did the compressions that restarted his heart.

A huge bouquet of roses to the Stamps hockey team and the executive who chose to suspend the game until my dad was taken out of the arena by the ambulance attendants. Very classy and heart warming move.

Had these people not all sprang selflessly into action the outcome could have been dire.

From myself and my entire family, thank you for saving my father. Class and care from all involved.
