Kamloops & District E. Fry would like to thank the Shoe Warehouses in Kamloops for their continued support of shoe / boot donations to the Community Closet and Housing programs. It is wonderful for folks to have brand new footwear!!!!
I would like to thank the public for being so supportive of the teachers for the past three days. The honks, waves and thumbs up as they were passing us protesting were amazing for our morale. At our school, we had caring, thoughtful citizens bring coffee, hot chocolate, scarves, donuts, muffins and sandwiches to show how much they appreciate us! Thank you is not enough to explain how appreciative we are of this generosity!
An Armful of Kindness Roses to Heather, who brought coffee and doughnuts to the protesting South Kam/Beattie teachers on 9th and Columbia Street on Monday! Your care and support was awesome! Thank you so much.
A difficult day made a little easier
On March 6 we had to put our best friend to sleep; his illness had gone too far for him to recover. We took him to Bylaws for cremation. We want to thank the two ladies at the front desk for their kindness to us and the great respect that they showed our deceased friend. They made a very difficult day just a little easier to deal with.
Keep up the good work, ladies; it is greatly appreciated.

Kindness in the wake of fire
I lived in Copper Ridge Court and my apartment was one of the ones that burned down. Even though I am consumed with feelings of loss, I wanted to take the time to express my appreciation.
To my family, friends, hockey team and my co-workers at Phoenix Centre, thank you for all of your love and support. To all the fire fighters, thank you for the job you do. I can never thank you enough for the compassion and understanding you all showed in regards to my cat.
A huge thank you is in order for the community of Kamloops as well. Everywhere I turn I have been met with unexpected acts of kindness and compassion. While I may never know your names, your actions will never be forgotten. I am proud to call Kamloops my home.
With much love,
Little Tiny had a very big day
My husband and I would like to immensely thank the lady who caught our Min-Pin in Rogers Place by Toys R Us in Kamloops on March 1 and took him out to the SPCA.
We would also like to thank all of the passersby who helped, the construction crew at the Accent Inn, the staff at the Accent Inn, the staff at the SPCA, as well as the radio stations.
At 7:30 a.m. we opened our hotel room door and our little like Tiny ran out and ended up on the freeway. At 10 a.m., with info from the hotel and construction crew we heard news that a very thoughtful, generous lady took him out to the SPCA, after everyone grouped together to catch him.
We spent hours driving around looking for him, but had to stop to take my husband to be admitted for surgery.
Our life would have never been the same again without him. He is the highlight of each and every day for us.
Thank you all so much for your care and concern, and we hope that you all have your kindness returned to you tenfold.

SH: Much support in last months
This is a letter of gratitude to the many wonderful folks who participated in the last months of Ernie Crossley’s life.
Dr. Eccleston and the compassionate and caring staff of 1C, Kamloops Seniors Village, tended to Dad with love and kindness, on a regular basis, in an effort to give him the best quality of life that his illness, Dementia, would allow him.
Pastors Allen Hern and Warren Trenholm of Kamloops First Baptist Church visited Dad regularly, ministering to his spiritual needs, and on occasion, taking him for a drive into the country he enjoyed so much.
Dennis, of Kamloops Funeral Home, patiently and respectfully guided family members in the necessary preparations and procedures.
When it came time to finally lay Dad to rest, our family was supported by many wonderful folks, each making their contribution in the way that was the best fit for them.
Sadly, in a rush to get family photos in remembrance of this special day before out-of-town relatives had to leave to return to their homes, we neglected to thank many who played a special part: Pastors Hern and Trenholm for their respective roles in the Graveside Service as well as the Celebration of Life Service; First Baptist Church catering crew for generously providing refreshments for the reception; our family members for their loving support and special participation throughout the day; and last, but definitely not least, to all the friends of the family who sent cards and/or emails of condolence and sympathy or came to pay respects to our Dad and our family.
To each of you, thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.
MARJORIE and CYNDI CROSSLEY
