I am writing to give kudos to Grand River Construction Co. They recently drove by my driveway and elected to fix a problem without me voicing a concern. This demonstrated a tremendous amount of integrity. In today’s tough economic times, it is the rare company that still puts quality above all else. David and Ellen BrooksGlenwood Springs

I cannot thank the people of Glenwood Springs enough for taking care of my son and his two young children today. While enroute home to California by Greyhound, my son had a seizure onboard. He was taken to your hospital where he was taken very good care of, and the children were fed and watched over. After my son was better, they were then taken back to the bus station to continue their journey. It was a while until the next bus, so the station manager in your town gave them food and drink, and did not charge them for it. The people of your wonderful town took such good care of my son and grandchildren! On behalf of my family, thank you so much. I will never forget your acts of kindness and generosity.Judith KeanTwo Harbors, Minn.

The family of Bernard “Bud” Collett would like to take this opportunity to express our heartfelt gratitude for the prayers, love, support and for all acts of kindness extended to us during Bud’s long illness and recent death. Thank you for the donations to YouthZone, which will be his living legacy. The food, flowers and beautiful cards, as well as the support of New Creation Church staff and support teams, have been a great comfort and so much appreciated. Medical care Bud received at the Rifle, Glenwood Springs, UC/Denver, Kindred Hospital and clinics during his lengthy illness was of great comfort and support to us. Words do not adequately express our gratitude, but we do thank everyone for the love and support.Charlene Collett, Ron & KaLee Dahlin, Chris & Lisa Thompson, Jeff & Andi Collett
