Lots of help, lots of thanks
On Tuesday, Aug. 26th I was rollerblading
with my two-year-old daughter, Vanessa, in her baby jogger. We were having our
usual fun time when all of a sudden an oncoming little boy on a bike crossed
the middle line of the Valley Trail and was directly blocking our path. I had
nowhere to go but down. I avoided the little boy but Vanessa and I hit the
pavement hard. The baby jogger snapped in half. Fortunately Vanessa was
completely safe. Thank God for her helmet, bike gloves and the time I spent
before the blade to ensure she was tightly and properly buckled in.
I am writing this letter to thank the amazing
people who came running to help us. I am sorry I did not make note of your
names in my state of shock but am so grateful for the time and care you took to
make sure we were okay.
Thanks to the lady playing golf at the
Whistler Golf Club who leapt over the creek, sat with me the entire time while
I caught my breath and who held Vanessa and assured me she was not hurt.
Thanks to the incredible staff at the
Whistler Golf Club who drove me to the clubhouse where I was picked up. There
were at least six staff who helped me, including the gal driving the
food/beverage cart who made me an icepack for my scraped legs, the nice guy who
drove the cart and patted my shoulder when I felt the need to cry, the two
medical people who checked to make sure I did not have a concussion, plus a
couple of others.
Finally I want to thank Kent Wills for always
being there for us. Your help and concern was incredible and I really want all
of you to know how much I appreciate it.
This letter was addressed to John Nelson, Capital Projects
Manager for the RMOW. A copy was forwarded to Pique for publication.
