Letter: Park bench dedicated to late husband much appreciated


I want to extend a sincere thank you to Rick Walti and crew from the Central Whidbey Lion’s Club for installing a memorial bench in my late husband’s honor at Driftwood Park.

Michael Crowell had Parkinson’s Disease, but was able to fish at Driftwood due the many helpful fisherman there who assisted him when he fell or couldn’t tie on a lure.

Two even swam in the water to get him when he fell in and his boots filled with water. It does my heart good to know that those helpful people can rest on the bench while they wait for the fish to start biting.

And without the Lions, the bench wouldn’t be there.

Christine Crowell
