Letter: Pieces owner kept me in one piece after Steveston fall

Dear Editor,

I want to express my deepest gratitude to David, the owner of Pieces gift store in Steveston.

While taking a leisurely walk in Steveston with my husband and a friend, I fell on a sidewalk right across the street from David’s gift store. I scraped my forearm, elbow and my knee and was bleeding badly.

In an instant a man appeared (at that time we had no idea who he was) with a roll of paper towels and a white plastic bag. He wrapped my arm and insisted I must go and sit down.

With my arm up in the air, we crossed the street so I could have a seat on the bench in front of his store. Then, he organized both my husband and my friend to take me to the ER. I received 19 stitches in my forearm and four stitches on my knee. It was an unpleasant ending to a beautiful afternoon and all I can say is if you have to fall, fall in front of David’s store and you will be well taken care of. Again, my sincere thanks to David.
