  3. Thank you West Seattle Blog for posting this for our family. Dad had fallen while walking & good samaritans who called the medics who took him to the hospital short while ago. He has only minor scrapes & we are grateful to the WSB, Tracy & the wonderful people in West Seattle who – we couldn’t live in a more caring community. Sleep well!
