Thanks to helping angels

Since Lefty Carr suffered severe burns in a house fire in 2003, many “angels” have come alongside to help.

Dear Editor:

Since Lefty Carr suffered severe burns in a house fire in 2003, many “angels” have come alongside to help. It is our first, and foremost, desire to express a heartfult thank you to all who have lovingly given of time, expertise, friendships, donations and medical aids.

A special thank you, once again, to the neighbours who helped him, to Laurie and family for looking after the children (you were and are such a blessing to us), to the Intensive Care and Burn Unit Staff at Victoria’s Royal Jubilee Hospital, to the firefighters, their “Burn House,” to the Ministry of Social Services and to the continued support from the B.C. Professional Fire Fighters Association Burn Fund. We’ll never forget you.

Many thanks go out to neighbouring and local communities and businesses for their gracious donations of products and support (i.e., Tempur-pedic Mattress Co., Sears Canada, Blue Valley Water, Far West Factory and Re-Boot Vancouver.)

Lefty’s needs are many since his cerebral palsy and burns to 85 per cent of his body have left him with ongoing health and financial issues. We humbly let you know that there is an in-trust donation account set up under Lefty Carr’s name at the TD Canada Trust should you wish to offer any help. This can be verified by a legitimate charitable representative (through Barbara at 250-752-2922.)

Again, a big thank you to all of you. Your name may not be shown here, but you know who you are.

God bless every one of you and Merry Christmas from Lefty and his whole family.

Barbara Hebert

Qualicum Beach, B.C.
