To the editor:
During the past month and a half, I have had to utilize the services of our local firefighters and paramedics. I can't praise these dedicated men and women enough! Each time we dialed 411, they were quick to respond and assisted me with such care and concern for my well being. In addition to exhibiting such professionalism, they were warm and friendly - each with a great sense of humor.
What I feared was going to be a major issue following my surgery, actually became an opportunity to meet some of Pine Island's BEST. Thank God for these very special human beings and, for F.I.S.H., through which I've been able to borrow the medical equipment I needed following the several surgeries I've had this past year.
Living in "paradise," as a permanent resident on Pine Island, makes me feel a little closer to Heaven!
