Letter: Officers showed compassion

Editor,

My wife passed away unexpectedly late in June.

Deputy Sheriff Robert J. Davison and Deputy J. Johnson arrived at my home and were organized, compassionate and professional. They stayed on scene to make sure my wife’s body was cared for by the funeral home and waited with me until friends arrived, making sure I would not be left alone.

I want to thank the Island County Sheriff’s deputies for their patience, professionalism and kindness during this very difficult time.

Kent Sanders,

Oak Harbor
