Heroes in my book

To the Life Savers at Charlotte EMS,

In January, I had a heart attack. Fortunately, I was picked up, treated and transported by you folks at the Charlotte EMS. I am not sure how you would ever adequately "thank" a group of folks who saved your life, but I need to try.

From the time I placed the call, until you arrived at our house and began the process of saving my life, was a very short time. I couldn't believe you could have responded that fast. I am glad and thankful you did! I don't think you could get any more efficient than you guys were that day.

I couldn't imagine the pain of having a heart attack or all the other associated symptoms, but I know I would rather not go through it again. The other thing I know is I am certainly fortunate that you guys were there to help me through it.

Your expertise, your expediency, and your compassion were evidenced in your actions. We are so very fortunate to have folks like you providing life support services to our area.

I am certain I would not be here if it weren't for you guys and your life saving efforts. I will be eternally gateful to you all! You guys will always be heroes in my book!

Last weekend I had the opportunity to be with all my grandkids. As I sat there looking at them, I couldn't help but think about the fact that I wouldn't be here to do it, if it weren't for you guys.

I offer a heartfelt "THANK YOU" for saving my life. I will be eternally grateful to you all.
