Thank you to store staff for help

On Oct. 22, my sister suffered a massive heart attack outside the front entrance of the Fred Meyer store on 128th and Bothell-Everett Highway. Several Fred Meyer employees rushed to her aid, giving assistance, calling 911 and comforting her husband. They closed the entrance doors, provided privacy screens and attentive care to the family’s needs. This was an extremely difficult time for our family and we appreciate their caring and respectful assistance.

We would like to thank in particular: Jodi Gibbs (manager), John (grocery) and Anita (cashier) for their assistance.

We would also like to thank the Everett Fire Department and chaplain for doing everything humanly possible to extend her life on Earth.
