Thanks for the help after accident



On Saturday, Jan. 22, we were on our way to spend the day skiing at Mount Timothy Ski hill when the Ford Explorer Sports Trac that we were driving hit black ice just south of the Sugar Cane turn off.  

Our vehicle slid out of control and crossed the centre line into oncoming traffic, where, unfortunately, there was a car coming. 

The impending accident was catastrophic, and search and rescue was called, as well as ambulances for all involved. 

The jaws of life were needed in order to extract us from the vehicle, which took some time. 

Ruth was flown to Kamloops on Saturday evening where she received exceptional care. 

She is now back in the Cariboo Memorial Hospital.

This letter is to express our deepest gratitude to all who were involved in helping us, from the passers-by who tended to us, to the search and rescue crew, the RCMP, the ambulance attendants, and then the amazing nurses and doctors at CMH.

We were treated with such care and compassion by all.

Words alone cannot express our thanks. 

To all of our friends who have sent prayers, flowers, cards and have visited, somehow thank you seems so inadequate.

It’s a long road to full recovery, but one that you have made so much easier to begin.

 Please drive carefully.

Dick Poole and

Jim and Ruth Fraser
