To the Editor:
My husband and I owe a huge debt of gratitude to the many people who offered support during my recent hospitalization.
First of all, a giant thanks to the Mattapoisett Library children’s librarian, Linda Burke, and library director, Susan Pizzolato, for calling 911 on October 31. I also want to thank police officers Matthew McGraw and Mitchell Suzan, paramedic Kevin Porter, and Mattapoisett police chief, Mary Lyons, for their prompt response and care in getting me to Tobey Hospital.
Thank you to my colleagues at the Mattapoisett Library and the Zeiterion Theatre, my bridge playing partners at the COA, my friends and neighbors from the Village at Mattapoisett condos and elsewhere, and to my dear family. Your support and caring in the form of meals, transportation, visits, phone calls, flowers, cards, and emails (both in the hospital and on my return home) have meant so much to me. I feel extremely lucky to be here as a part of such a caring community. There is no way I could ever repay each of you except by saying thank you and doing my best to pay it forward!
