Senior grateful for help when she fell

Dear Editor

On Fri., Dec. 13 I slipped and fell crossing the street in front of the insurance office (in Rimbey). I would like to thank the fellow senior who came to my aid.

May karma be upon those who drove around me, and decided maybe someone else would help so they could have a stress free weekend.

I do hope you don’t have to think of your family members who may be falling and need help.

The only man in Rimbey is the one who came to my rescue. Also, the two female ambulance drivers and the four men, (firemen) whom the ladies called to help them, because it was so slippery.

They were afraid they might drop me. Too bad the people who stopped to watch were not there to help me when I fell. The fact that I fell does not bother me. I usually find the motion up in the air quite humorous. Although, usually, at that point I do offer my assistance (if I see someone fall).

Could I have a copy if anyone stopped to take pictures with their phone?
