Letters to the Editor

Thank you

The Compassionate Friends (TCF), a self-help group for bereaved parents, would like to extend its thanks to the community.

To simply say thank you would never come close to the overwhelming gratitude we have for Nixon Wenger, The Morning Star and the People Place (Elaine Collison) who have allowed us to gather in a safe place to continue with our very difficult journey of loss.

At this time, we would also like to extend our appreciation to the Vernon community service organizations for their referrals; the Compassionate Friends advisory board members who are always available to provide guidance when needed (Carolyn Christiansen, Donna Albury, Diana Mahortoff, Dorothy Larsen, and Brenda Rutherford) and The Morning Star lifestyles editor for ensuring the public is aware of our organization (Katherine Mortimer).

Finally, we would like to thank the United Way and the North Okanagan Community Foundation for providing TCF with the funding for our Seabeck and outreach programs.


Darlene Auguston, Vernon
