Hey there, time traveller!

I was walking into the St. James Costco with my mother and granddaughter when my 85-year-old mother stumbled on the edge of the sidewalk and took a nasty fall.
She suffered some bruising and a cut on her head which required stitches.
I would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who came to our aid and stayed until emergency services arrived. I am beyond grateful.
In particular, there was one gentleman who sacrificed a beautiful leather coat to cushion my mother’s bleeding head. He left when EMS arrived, and I did not get his name or have a chance to speak to him. I wish I knew who he is so I could thank him personally and compensate him for his selflessness.
I would also like to thank the EMS personnel for the great care. It was timely, professional and caring.
Mom is in some pain but recovering nicely.
