Letter: Thanks to all who helped during tragedy

To the Editor:

I would like to thank the Southold Town Police Department, the Southold Fire Department, Eastern Long Island Hospital  staff and my community members for all of their help last July 31. I apologize for not writing sooner, but I wasn’t emotionally up to the task.

My daughter, Heather Domino, had a tragic accident and within minutes of placing a call to 911, the police, the fire department and EMTs  arrived and attempted to revive my daughter.

All of the responders were professional, well trained and kind.

Officer Ginas especially went above and beyond. A caring neighbor, Susan Ward drove me to ELIH and stayed there with me.

In the emergency room, I was helped by other neighbors  whose kindness I will never forget .  Thank you Sally, Pete, and Ivy Manwaring and all the others who responded that day.

Thank you to all of my friends and neighbors who were at our house when we arrived home. I am thankful for living in such a compassionate community.

Thank you all.

Joy Domino, Southold
