Bus driver says thanks

letter to the editor from Linda & Jack Kelley - Bus driver says thanks

To the editor;

We are happy to report that we have many heroes in our valley.  This was evident on the evening of January 24, when Jack choked and nearly died at a Kamloops fast food restaurant after taking a basketball team to St. Ann’s school.

Thanks very much to Anfinn Siwallace for your help and concern, and to Hannah Feller for phoning 911.

We would like to extend a huge thank-you to Clearwater coach, Geoff Giesbrecht and students Jairus Bromley and Brock Vandamme for saving Jack’s life!

Thanks also to the Clearwater bus driver that drove our basketball team home to Barriere.  We are lucky to live in a place where there are so many caring and concerned people.

To the students who were with me that night – thanks for your concern and compassion, and I promise to try not to scare you like that again.

Linda and Jack Kelley
