Readers Say Thanks

Goscha family appreciates community

The family of Trent Goscha would like to thank our wonderful community of family and friends who wrapped their arms around us and held our heads above water after the recent loss of our beloved Trent. We can never express how much it means to us that so many of you sent cards, flowers, food, and prayers our way during this unbearable time. The visits, hugs, and stories about Trent have sustained us through the horrific pain, and we have no way to thank you enough.

A special thanks goes out to Shannon and the staff of Farnum-Holt, Stacey at Gran Farnum Printing, Doug Self and the staff at the Orchard, Jen Lamont & CMS Staff, MOMG (Mean Old Mr. Gray) and the CMS/RFHS Band, Brad and Niki Day, Cody Griebel, the Carbondale Police Department, and Sean and Laura Martin for making Trent’s Memorial service a fitting tribute to our cowboy. We are humbled and grateful to God for you all.
