Daffodil; theft deprives all

Being the owner of Kitimat Veterinary Hospital, I take care that the outside of the practice should reflect the same care and attention that is taken inside of the practice.

Dear sir,

Being the owner of Kitimat Veterinary Hospital, I take care that the outside of the practice should reflect the same care and attention that is taken inside of the practice.

Also my view to the hospital, health of my patients, relationships with my clients and my environment is long term.

In my first year here someone kindly game me some unwanted daffodil bulbs and, with a long term view, these were planted under the trees across the road from the Veterinary Hospital.

Last year we had but one flower and looked forward to the time it had companions.

This year we were rewarded with a bouquet of blooms sitting under the edge of the trees at the edge of the forest.

That was until a week ago Friday night when someone selfishly picked them (I assume to give as a gift to another).

That act then deprives all the people who drive by the corner the opportunity to enjoy those blooms in a ‘natural’ setting.

I write this letter in the hope of pre-empting further ‘thefts’.

Although these flowers do not appear to belong to anyone, they are placed there for the enjoyment of many.

Please leave them there for that purpose.

Sincerely,

 

Dr. Howard Thwaites.
