Selfless act helps elderly woman get back home

Editor: On the evening of July 1 (Canada Day), my 90-year-old mother managed to catch a bus without a bus pass and not any money that I know of. She  found her way to Langley. She has a mild case of Alzheimer’s  and is not the same mother I knew just a few short years ago.

She took in some Canada Day events and afterwards wandered aimlessly, nearly being hit by a vehicle. An exceptionally kind-hearted individual took my mother into their own car and dropped her off at the local RCMP, to be returned to us.

I just wanted to say “Thank you.” Without your selfless act, my mother may not have been returned to us. You went above and beyond the call of duty. From the bottom of heart, I wanted to express my deepest appreciation and kindness.

Jim Chan,

Richmond
