Letters to the Editor

The Ashdowns are an awesome family

Editor: I am writing this letter in response to the story of Kimberly Ashdown’s family needing a new van (The Times, Jan. 23).

I have known the Ashdowns for about seven years, and they are an awesome family. I am really hoping that the community of Langley will rally around this family to hopefully help them out, providing them with a van for Kimberly.

This family would go out of their way to help other people out before asking for help themselves. Graham Ashdown always drives my two kids around if they need a ride home from school or to basketball practice. When I was ill, Graham drove me to the hospital every day for a week. For that, I am very grateful.

I am really hoping that someone will find it in their hearts to help out this wonderful, caring and thoughtful family so Kimberly can enjoy her outings which some people take for granted. For her, it would make a big difference.


Chandra Surinak,
