Heartfelt thank you
To the Editor:
In late August, while swimming, I suffered a severe heart attack.
After being rescued from the water by my neighbor and his wife, I was transported to the emergency department of the Rumford Hospital. The staff at the hospital literally saved my life. They brought me back from certain death.
I and my family will always be grateful and thankful for the professional staff, nurses and doctors who truly are Rumford Hospital at its finest.
We should, as a community, be proud and thankful and realize how fortunate we are to have a hospital in this area with such a caring and professional staff.
I would also like to thank the small but loving community at Roxbury Pond. Your help and support to not only me but my children in our time of need will be forever remembered.
Lastly, thanks to all for your cards, well wishes, phone call and prayers. It was uplifting and appreciated more than you'll know.
Donald G. Hebert and family
