Disaster response meant a lot

Dear Editor,

Dear Friends,

I am not much on writing letters to the editor; in fact, this is my very first. We could not rest without saying a genuine thank you to so many people that protected our home at Juniper Circle in West Glenwood. We must add our thanks to a fantastic job performed by the firefighters, pilots, police, sheriff’s department, city officials and other emergency workers and helpers. We do not want to leave any individuals out of our praise and appreciation; however, we do not know about many of them.

The observation tour on Sunday afternoon I took in the city van was very helpful, and for our family, a relaxing of our minds that our home remained intact; however, for others, regrettably it was heart-breaking.

Those in charge and doing the work fighting the fire did all they could to save every home, and are not to be blamed in the slightest.

Everyone in charge that we dealt with was very polite, cooperative, and helpful. I have severe asthma and during the situation developed several attacks. The second day, we were able to return home momentarily to get more asthma medicine. Thank you for that privilege. It meant a lot.

May there be just enough clouds in your life to make a beautiful sunset!

Thank you again,

Ted Magnuson,

Glenwood Springs
