Letters to the Editor

Seatbelt safety

A sincere and heart-felt thank you goes out to the Island County Sheriff’s deputies, Washington State Patrol, the dozens of volunteer firemen who responded, the Whidbey General Ambulance crews and skilled EMTs, and the Whidbey General ER physicians and nurses for coming to the aid of our daughter Jamesa Woods and also my husband, Larry Sieffert, as a result of their individual and separate auto accidents which occurred on June 7 and June 29.

Seatbelts do save lives! Wear them, always! Without them, we wouldn’t have our beautiful 19-year-old daughter and I would be without the love of my life. I cannot imagine life without either person. We are a truly grateful family and are so humbled by the miracles that our Lord and Savior has so graciously bestowed upon us in the wake of these two auto accidents.

Thank you and God bless you all for being there in our time of need.

Jill J. Sieffert
