Neighbors, strangers helped at fire

Thanks go to many for helping family in house fire ordeal.

Dear Editor:

We would like to take this opportunity to thank some people.

Our dad, Richard, lost his home in a fire Wednesday, Sept. 5.

Thank you so very much to his neighbours and strangers who pulled him to safety.

Thank you to the Summerland fire department for being so gentle with his sweet dog, Brandy, when you brought her to us; to the SPCA for the care package for Chilco who lost his friend; to the Grooveyard for the clothes for dad (love the sweater).

Thank you to Critteraid; we will bring Dad in once he feels better.

Thank you to the Facebook networking of my sister Lisa; we have received some clothes, household items and a couple halters for the full sized horses.

We have a very special thank you to a few people:

To our beautiful maple tree neighbor, thank you so very much for all your help; you have been amazing.

To our hilltop neighbor, thank you for taking dad in. It means so much knowing he is well looked after.

To Jenny’s mom and dad, thank you for always watching out for Dad.

If it hadn’t been for these three neighbors, we may have lost more than sweet Brandy and Peaches the cat.

This tragedy has been very difficult; however, with the help of a few strangers and neighbors, it has been made a bit better.

We send out our heartfelt thank you to everyone who has helped us, even from as far away as the United States.

Thank you so very much.

Jim, Liam, Alec, Lisa, Kaytlyn, James, Cindy, Sarah, Dallas, Richard and Chilco Davis
