Thank you from the Raymond family

Letter to the editor

Editor:

 

The Raymond family would like to thank the communities of Fort Fraser, Fraser Lake and Vanderhoof for the kind and generous  donations given through bottles drives and donation cans.

These monies were intended for Greg Raymond’s recovery expenses when released from St. Paul’s Hospital.  Greg had a massive heart attack on August 12 and had open heart surgery on August 26.  He received a heart pump for the left side of his heart.  After a courageous battle Greg passed away on September 22. A celebration of Life was held for him at the Fort Fraser Community Hall on October 1.

It is the family’s wishes that the total monies raised be donated to the Heart Centre at St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver. It will be donated in memory of Greg Hartley Raymond. Greg had the most amazing care and treatment during his five weeks at St. Paul’s Hospital.  On October 4 the sum of $ 2,215.50 was donated to the Heart Centre at St. Paul’s Hospital.  Greg was 53 years old and a long time resident of Fort Fraser.

The family would also like to thank the Nautley Band for monies given to his wife and daughter for travel expenses.
