Readers say thanks

My wife and I have been visiting your community for over 30 years. There is a reason for the visits. The people of Glenwood Springs are so friendly and so much fun. We have always been a big fan of yours.

Recently during our annual ski trip to Glenwood Springs, my wife suffered a serious injury while skiing. She fell and broke her hip.

The purpose of this letter is to thank the many people who came to her rescue.

To the Sunlight Ski Patrol ” thanks, your actions were prompt, professional, and contributed immeasurably to the success of all who followed.

To the Glenwood Firemen who responded ” thanks, you got her to the hospital quickly, safely, and professionally, where the doctors were able to treat her.

To the Valley View Hospital Emergency Room personnel ” thanks, you got her stabilized, and reduced the suffering.

To Dr. Leotta ” thanks, the operation was successful.

To the wonderful nurses, therapists, and case workers on the fourth floor of Valley View Hospital ” thanks. God’s Angels were probably busy, so He sent you.

Even though this was an unfortunate accident, I am convinced it could have not happened at a better place. Your hospital is beautiful, second only to the people who work there.

Thank you, Glenwood Springs. We will be back.

This is a thank-you for an unknown person who made me smile.

After the trash was picked up, my container was tipped over in the street. I was preparing to go take care of it but when I opened the door, I discovered someone had already taken care of it.

This random act of kindness made me smile all day. I’m so thankful and proud of this person.

Thank you to all the people who supported our Cancer Awareness Dinner at Rifle High School during the Rifle versus Glenwood basketball games last Tuesday night. It’s nice both communities can pull together for a good cause. Special thanks to KMTS, the Glenwood Springs Post Independent and the Citizen Telegram for helping us spread the word.
