Editor,

On Saturday, Aug. 10, 2013, my family and I were coming home from Radium at about two in the afternoon.

A lady heading east bound fell asleep at the wheel and crossed over into our lane, striking us in the side. The impact sent us spinning, sliding and tumbling into the bush just by the Peaks Lodge, destroying our vehicle.

This is to thank all those who came to our aid, from the fire and rescue to the paramedics. Thank you to the female paramedic person who came to our rescue in the afternoon and was at the desk of the Sandman later in the afternoon. Our taxi driver Rob from R Taxi who was exceptional picking us up at the hospital and taking us around to get necessities, and later taking us to our vehicle and helping us salvage what we could. Thank you to those at the tow yard Classic Towing who went through the bush gathering up our things and finding our laptop and my company cellphone. Thank you to the doctor who was traveling ahead of us and stopped to help. Thanks to the paramedic that was taking Boy Scouts camping who also stopped to help. Thanks to the manager and staff at Red Apple who gave us discount on the clothing after the accident.

Thank you to Revelstoke for everything.

My wife and are still working through some recovery and my son and his friend have mostly recovered now.

We just haven’t been able to find all the right words to say thank you until now.

Tim Waldern and family
