Editor, The Times:
On July 20 of this year my husband Keith and I had a minor motorcycle accident in Wells Grey Provincial Park. My husband sustained a badly broken leg that required ambulance transportation to Clearwater Hospital.
I want to thank all the people who stopped helped to help and support us – particularly a mother and daughter who stayed for the duration of our roadside wait, suppling towels for shade, blankets for comfort and water. Their friendly smiling faces as I floundered in the shock of the situation will remain with me.
Many others stopped, offered help, made phone calls and delivered messages.
The help continued at Clearwater’s hospital, where five professional, friendly women cared for us so well. Dr. Broadbent attended to Keith, also in a professional, caring manner. After nine days in Kamloops Hospital we are home in Australia and Keith is recovering well.
Thank you, Clearwater. You will be remembered for the very best reasons.
