Everyone at Cariboo Growers would like to send a huge bouquet of roses to Telus for finding and returning our Carrot Open sign (painted by local school children).

It was sad to find it missing one day, and very exciting to have it returned. Thank you very much. For those who haven’t seen the carrot, it is on display every day the co-op is open. Thank you.

Roses to Randall Bamford from Save-On-Foods and his family for spending the day at Ride Don’t Hide on June 21 handing out snacks and water to all our participants.

A big bouquet of roses to Const. Graeme Jacques of the Williams Lake RCMP detachment for his help in fixing our tire.

On June 29 my sister and I were leaving Williams Lake after visiting some family for the weekend when we had issues with one of our tires. Const. Jacques pulled over to help us and, although it was 35-plus degrees out on Stampede weekend and clearly not part of his job, he fixed our tire and sent us safely on our way.

So, thank you for being a kind citizen and an even better police officer.

Where do I start? There are so many people who have helped us in the past couple of months. Words can’t express our gratitude. A truck full of roses. First the staff at Cariboo Memorial Hospital who cared for my husband, Jack Rowat, from the doctors, nurses, respitary therapists and the list goes on.

You all gave so much, beyond your jobs. We are blessed to have such caring people in our hospital.

Also to our family and friends. Your prayers, visits, calls all meant so much. Not to mention the food, flowers and hugs.

Jack appreciated all of you, old friends, and new, you all touched our lives.

Thanks to the ladies at the United Church for your great lunch, Luc LaPraire, and Father Derrick.

Also, I’m very grateful for all the tender loving care my Mom, Ruth Eddy received in the past few months.

To Lisa and staff at the Seniors Village and the nursing staff on the second floor of the hospital. Also Dr. Ruane, and discharge nurse Janet, for all the wonderful care at Deni House.

Thank you all so much. The compassion for our family was outstanding.

Thank you to everyone who touched our hearts.

Marg Rowat and family

We would like to commend the police officers, fire fighters, the towing company and the private citizens that helped us out on June 24, 2015.

A big thanks to all of you on behalf of the McDonald’s Restaurant team in Williams Lake.  We thank you for your excellent work, professionalism, prompt response and timely handling of the emergency situation in our drive thru.

We may never understand why these occurrences happen but we know they make us stronger and united as a community.

Thank You.
