Thanks for the ride

I’d like to say thank you to Allana Gould of the firehall. Her actions really did make a difference in my life.

Dear Editor:

On a cold and snowy day in December at 6:45 am. I ordered a cab for 10 a.m. Sitting and waiting for the cab which was 20 minutes late, I thought, “To heck with this,” and started walking to town. I had to go to the Bank of Montreal and thought I’d phone a cab from there.

I was walking on the opposite side of the road when a young lady came out from the firehall. I started talking to her. I found her name was Allana Gould and I told her my story of sitting on my walker seat waiting for my cab to take me to lab at the Summerland Hospital for a blood test. She said, “Hop into my van and I’ll take you back to the lab.” I did this and she took me to the lab, waited for me and took me back to town to the Bank of Montreal. Truly she was a Good Samaritan on a very dismal start of my Wednesday.

She renewed my faith in the human race and I’d like to say thank you to Allana Gould of the firehall. Her actions really did make a difference in my life.
