Ko’s family ‘forever grateful’ to generous residents of Stettler

On behalf of my mother (Ella Ko), Jodi’s fiancé (Chester Sergent), my brother (Kevin Fortier), my sister (Jeanne Ko), and Jodi’s children

Dear Editor:

On behalf of my mother (Ella Ko), Jodi’s fiancé (Chester Sergent), my brother (Kevin Fortier), my sister (Jeanne Ko), and Jodi’s children (Jesse and Kohle), we would like to thank everyone who has supported our sister, daughter and mother, Jodi Ko, who suffered a massive stroke on Aug. 13.

It was a tragic event that I hope no other family will ever have to endure. We couldn’t believe this happened to our Jodi, who is a loved daughter, sister and bride-to-be. If it wasn’t for the kind and generous people of Stettler who gave whatever they could to help with trips to Calgary, gifts for Jodi and prayers, I don’t know how we could have made it through these past weeks.

It’s the people of Stettler that make this world a better place to live and we will never forget the hugs, cards, flowers and donations that everyone gave so freely. It touched us all with smiles, tears and a heart full of gratitude. I’m so happy to report that Jodi is progressing in ways we never thought that would happen so soon after the stroke. She has the doctors and nurses in awe of her speedy recovery.

My sister, Jeanne, told Jodi that we will get her a wheelchair and she very quickly responded by saying, “No, no.” That tells me she plans to walk out of that hospital. I’m so waiting for that day.

The days and weeks from now, we will always look back and be so grateful of how the town of Stettler got together in our time of need.

Debra Pelechosky

(sister of Jodi Ko)
