A thank-you to strangers

A woman shares her gratitude toward two people who helped her husband when he had a stroke in a Surrey shopping centre.

Thanks to two complete strangers, my husband is alive and with us this Christmas.

On Saturday, my husband suffered a stroke while shopping at Guildford Town Centre.

Two people came to his aid out in the parking lot while he stumbled around on the ground trying to figure out why he couldn’t stand up.

A lot of people would have just turned a blind eye and made a comment about another “bum”.

These two people came to his assistance and saved his life by calling an ambulance immediately.

He is in hospital and doing well.

A big thank-you to you both from all our family.

Thanks for caring and Merry Christmas.

A big thanks to all our family friends co-workers and neighbours for all your kind wishes and help.

Jackie Sjostrom, Surrey
