Grandmother thanks Kitimat heroes for saving her grandson

A grandmother thanks those in Kitimat who saved her grandson from a horrible car accident on Dec. 5.

Dear Sir,

My name is Rita Dawson, I am Grandmother to Garrett Dawson of Kitimat who was the passenger in the vehicle that caught fire during the horrendous accident on the highway into Kitimat.

I reside on Vancouver Island and am unable to afford the flights from the Island to Kitimat to see my Grandson therefore it is with the deepest of appreciation and heartfelt gratitude that I am doing the only thing left to me in writing the people of the Town of Kitimat and those wonderfully selfless folk who stopped that evening and helped both of the precious young men who were injured.

Sending all of you a big hug.  THANK YOU!

From the Heart of a Grandmother

To the Heart of a Community

YOU ROCK!

Rita Dawson,

Ladysmith
