Glenwood Springs, CO Colorado

We want to thank friends, family, the Eagles, Dr. Lorah, Glenwood Medical Associates and Lesa Russo and her staff at Hospice for the wonderful care that was given to our mother. You are the greatest. Also the Waldorf School for the beautiful scarfs. We appreciate all the food, cards, prayers and mostly your support.

For the past two years I’ve had the pleasure of serving coffee and breakfast to the wonderful people of Silt, Rifle, and the surrounding area, as a waitress at Steffie’s Place in Silt.

On June 3, I gave my notice that I would be taking a new position with a local employer, giving June 18 as my last date of employment, allowing for the scheduling adjustments that would have to be made (and daddy always said you give two weeks notice as a professional courtesy).

On June 6, I received a call that my shifts had been covered and I would not be needed further. Beyond the shock of not being able to make my daily wage, I had anticipated having time to say my goodbyes to the many interesting, warm, kind, wonderful people I met on a daily basis. Not having that option, I felt compelled to send a thank-you to all the people who made me laugh and were always there for me when the going got tough.

My customers were the hardest part of my decision to leave the restaurant, but my new job will allow me more time to work on my Habitat for Humanity House and fulfill my dream of landing permanently in my own home. Thanks, also, to my former co-workers. I leave with fond memories of my time at Steffie’s Place. I look forward to seeing one and all at the grocery store or Wal-Mart (the host of all great community run-ins).

Best wishes to all!

My deepest thanks to everyone at the E. Dene Moore Care Center during my recent three-week recovery time there.

Nursing care and therapy sessions were very professional and caring. The aides and other employees were very attentive and pleasant.

The meals were just great and the recreation programs were entertaining and fun.

How fortunate we are to have such a well-managed care facility in our community.

I was gratified to be there during their surprise state inspection my last week and hear the report and grade they were given is an A+.

Nice going. Rifle should be proud.

Again, thanks to all of you.
