Readers Say Thanks

Post Independent
Glenwood Springs, CO Colorado

The family of Dolores Rippy wishes to express our appreciation for the kind expressions of sympathy from the community during her illness and recent death. We would especially like to acknowledge the special care she was provided during her illness by the many caring professionals at Grace Healthcare.

A special thanks also to the kind professional assistance provided by everyone at Farnum Holt Mortuary.

On Sunday, my wife Kathy and I were hiking up the cross-country trails at Sunlight when I suddenly wasn’t feeling well and decided the smart move was to not continue on. Unfortunately, we were about 2 miles from the base of the hill. Kathy ran down to get help and flagged down Matt Christie who was out on his snowmobile. As I later found out, Matt is the head of Sunlight Mountain Snowmobile Tours. Matt was gracious enough to go out of his way to drive up the mountain to pick me up and give me a ride down to the first aid station.

I want to thank Matt for going out of his way and if anyone is considering going on a Sunlight snowmobile tour, I can now assure you that Matt knows what he is doing and knows the mountain. Thanks again, Matt, for helping me down.
