Meyers acknowledge community support

We are so grateful to the Roaring Fork Valley community for the outpouring of support we have received in the last few weeks since Guido's passing. Your kindness and support have given us strength in this difficult, painful time. The thoughtfulness in this valley is truly amazing.

Thank you to family, friends, the community and the business community. There have been so many generous acts — food, flowers, cards, visits, donations and so many kind words about Guido. We want to thank everyone who has helped us through so far. We feel blessed to be part of such a caring community.

With sincere thanks,

The Family of Guido Meyer
