Readers say thanks
The Gordon Cooper Library and the Mt. Sopris Historical Society would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to Clifford Duncan, Ute Elder, who spoke on Friday to a record crowd of over 140 delighted listeners about his family’s memories of their ancestral home in this area. We were honored to have had the opportunity to listen to Duncan’s stories, songs and recollections. To all those who call this valley home, it was an extraordinary evening of education and sharing.

Rick Oakes and the Oakes family
The outpouring of love and support from dear friends, family, neighbors, business acquaintances, and colleagues received since the death of our loved one, Terry “TJ” Kramer, has been a precious gift which has lifted our hearts, and helped us all to realize how blessed we are to live here and know all of you.
Mountain View Church, Pastors Jeff and Dave opened their arms to our family for a wonderful memorial service. The Elks Club and the Eagle Aerie offered all of us delicious food and warm fellowship. Flower Mart and The Print Works helped us with nature’s beauty and ideas for the memorial program.
Glenwood Middle School faculty and staff loaded us up with food for visiting relatives. Farnum Holt’s Thomas was so kind and helpful in the various preparations and decisions we had to make. Our dear friend, Mark Stripp, made absolute works of art from treasured wood to lovingly memorialize Terry.
Chuck Shupe and Annette Wescott lived at our side for days, housed and fed visiting family, and held us up in those first difficult days. Many friends left notes, food, and repeated offers of help and support. Bosses and co-workers covered for us for days on end.
Love and friendship like this is richness beyond all knowing. You all have honored us and honored Terry so with all you’ve done.
Daughters Lindsey and Ashley Kramer, and their mom Carol Thompson
Terry’s brother, Scott and Trish Kramer
TJ’s father, sisters, cousins, nieces, nephews and in-laws
