HAVE YOU SAY: Families grateful for care their elderly parents received

The Scott and Hooper families were delighted with the care their parents received at the Comox Valley Seniors Village.

The Scott and Hooper families were delighted with the care their parents received at the Comox Valley Seniors Village on Headquarters Road. Dorothy and Ralph Scott went through all three levels of care until they passed away this spring at ages 91 and 92. They would have celebrated their 70 wedding anniversary in September, having been married in 1942. Family members could not have administered the level of care their parent received. Dorothy and Ralph were together with other retirees of their generation  and enjoyed an active social life in this modern retirement community. Staffing at all three levels were exceptional and the Comox Valley is lucky to have this facility. To thank the staff, the family donated a painting called The Glacier and the Poppies by family member Brian Scott. Grant, Carol and Brian Scott, general manager Michael Aikins, staff and residents were on hand for the presentation.

The Comox Valley Unit of the Canadian Cancer Society would like to extend a huge thank you to the residents, businesses and CFB Comox for their ongoing support of our daffodil pin campaign this past spring. Once again, we are overwhelmed by the generous community support. Comox Valley community, you are the best.

Comox Town Hall has spent a lot of money on making our main street something to be proud of. Is there anything they can do about the Lorne Hotel site? It is a disgrace.

Re: a letter to the editor in the April 27 comox Valley Record headlined When lowest price is all that matters to you, you get what you pay for. Well said and clearly stated, Ellen Rainwalker. We need to hear this type of message more often in order to balance a barrage of energy and information encouraging the opposite direction. Thanks sincerely for this well-written piece.
