A huge bunch of roses to the RCMP officers who rescued Tucker.

They were so caring and loving.

The world has to know the RCMP stand for good. Everyone is rejoicing Tucker is OK.

A very big bunch of roses to the kind woman who offered our elderly customer a ride home when the taxi never showed up.

She shouldn’t be left waiting in the cold to get home and I very much appreciate your willingness to lend a helping hand.

A big bunch of roses to Carrie and Randy for bringing the young boys from Lake City Secondary School Columneetza Campus to Glen Arbor to do interviews with us.

We, the lucky ones, had a great time and the boys did a wonderful presentation.

Thank you all.

A sincere thank you to Dr. Brosseuk, Dr. Roux, Lindsey Thiessen and the nurses at emergency who  provided care for our son when he was in need of an appendectomy over the holidays.

Their work was very professional at a time when the ER was busy, and greatly appreciated by us.

Bouquets of roses to the person or persons who returned my shopping bags and purse to the Save-On-Foods store service counter on Dec. 22, 2015.

I had just had distressing news of a family member and left in a hurry.

My sincere appreciation and thanks to you for your thoughtful action and kindness.

I will remember your quick action always.

Thank you, as well, to the staff at Save-On-Foods for their contact and courtesy in returning them to me.

Honesty and caring make this a very special community. I shall pass on this gift of kindness to someone in my future.

Happy New Year to all.

A bunch of roses to the palliative care nurses.

What amazing people they are.

And thanks to the staff at the emergency, Kornak and Hamm, especially Cathie, Dr. Scrooby and Dr. Roland Engelbrecht and home care, for their compassion and support during my husband’s battle with cancer.
