Proud to call Cache Creek her home town

Writer says the hometown still pulled through for family under stress.

Dear Editor

Aug. 29, 2014 was when my father, Stan Lievers, was beaten unconscious for no apparent reason, and left to die by someone in your town. Someone, I might add, who is still free, without criminal charges because the my dad was beaten so badly he couldn’t remember what happened.

During that extremely stressful time six months ago, many people pulled together to help our family through the stress and the five weeks dad was in RIH recovering from this incident. I want to thank each and every one of you who helped us, gave food and drink, offered babysitting for our two babies, helped harvest the garden and maintain the yard, gave emotional support and even offered rides and gas money. I was amazed at the generosity and kindness of these people.

When dad died of lung cancer on Feb 12, again, the caring people in the Cache Creek area pulled together to support my family any way they could. I am so very happy knowing that there are still wonderful people in this world and it puts a smile on my face knowing that my mom will be okay staying there. Even though I was surprised that the Ashcroft RCMP did not send a member to my dad’s funeral out of respect over the beating a mere five months prior, I know that they are working diligently to resolve this case with the community’s assistance because seeing a town that is so close knit, everything will come out into the open soon enough.

With all the generosity I have seen in the last little while, I am extremely proud to have grown up there and thankful for all the great people still living there. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
