If I ever need help again …

EDITOR:
First I want to thank the two people who saw me fall and immediately came to help me as I was lying on the cold blacktop on Saturday, Jan. 8. You were angels to me. I will never forget your kindness and thanks for calling 911. When the ambulance arrived things happened very fast.
I also want to thank the Placerville city firefighters and the Marshall Hospital ER staff for their care and attention for me from the time I passed out around 5 p.m. on Broadway to the time I was OK’d to go home.
The professional and empathetic manner of the firefighters was outstanding, without a doubt the best you could ever want.
When I got to the ER at Marshall, I was quickly admitted and was attended to right away by the nurses and doctors. My stay there while being treated and checked out was again the very best you could ever have.
If I were to ever need help again, I would want it to be right here in Placerville where we have world class professionals on duty to help, whatever the situation. I cannot thank you all enough.
Sorry I dont recall the names of all that helped me, But they know who they are and you are appreciated so very much.
Thanks for your help. You are my friends.
LOUIS (GENE) DePELLO
