Glenwood Springs, CO Colorado

We lost our home, on Silt Mesa, to a fire on Jan. 15 and want to thank the Burning Mountains Fire Department, now known as Colorado River Fire Department, for its quick response.

We also want to thank all our friends, family and co-workers who have called and sent cards and funds to help us through this difficult time.

Even though we had no insurance we are thankful that we only lost “stuff” (material items) and that there were no injuries.

Thanks to all,

Don and Edna Place


It takes a dynamic blend of very distinctive, intelligent, passionate and dedicated people to effectively convey and reinforce usage of significant, complex and essential information. Not everyone is equipped with the patience, persistence or dexterity to cultivate and wreath every fundamental piece of knowledge required to form the anchorage necessary for an individual’s introduction or continuation of the imperishable pursuit of knowledge, consciousness, virtuosity or predominance. So, that being stated, we wish to extend our most genuine, immeasurable gratitude, appreciation, recognition and acclamation for the educators and faculty members of Riverside Middle School. Your lifework is eternally reverential.

Without Riverside Middle School’s extensive continuous equitable collaboration, reciprocity, judicious and indifference we would be lost. The impact that has been made in our son’s life is so tremendous; we can never thank you enough. Our family has struggled with some formidable challenges, but with your cooperation and support those issues are lessening and seem to be fading into the past faster than we ever imagined.

You are not just a school, or a destination; to us, Riverside, you are the place where time stood still, our path altered, and our future was illuminated eternally. I can proudly say every staff member cares, and each and every day they work diligently to help our son succeed every day, not just in school, but at life.
