Family grateful

On Jan. 24, three lifeguards at the Vernon Recreation Complex changed the course of many lives.

On Jan. 24, three lifeguards at the Vernon Recreation Complex changed the course of many lives.

The front page story on Feb. 1 of a 36-year-old woman who suffered sudden death syndrome and was resuscitated was, and will always be, too close for comfort.

There are no words to describe how blessed we are, how thankful we are, how indebted we feel.

You saved our wife, our mother, our sister, our daughter, our friend.

The life of one person impacts the lives of many, and although you did your ‘job’ on that day, you also added time and moments to many other lives.

As our precious person heals her heart and mind, she, along with the rest of her family, and friends, will remember how the remarkable actions of three Vernon lifeguards gave her, her life back.

Thank you from our family to you.
