Letters: Amazing community

Reader is overcome by the thoughtfulness in the Sooke community

Valentines Day is not the same as the neurological brain disease takes the dear heart I love to a different place. Yesterday was an awful day for him, headaches that never quit and other things. He opened his eye in the morning and said, “Sorry I didn’t get you a Valentine.”

Friends have us over for supper most Fridays and it was such a bad day that I had to phone with regrets. The Fladagers then prepared to bring the whole meal deal supper over to us.

Feeling so blessed and loved we were sitting in the front room watching the game shows together. The front door bell rang and 10 very wonderful young folks with flowers and singing us some love songs. “You are my sunshine” and my dear heart sang it to me as well.  What a special day. Thanks to those thoughtful young folks. A great memory to treasure as the illness progresses.

It takes a village to raise a child and help the old folks. We are so blessed to live in this wonderful community.
