Letter: Denney family salutes Glenwood

It was just over six months ago that our lives turned upside down with Craig’s diagnosis of cancer. It was also at that time that this amazing community showed us yet once again how generous and caring it is. Although the treatment was grueling for Craig and our family, it was three months of being swaddled by so many with prayer, meals, cards, gifts, fundraisers and support. We wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you!

WE CELEBRATE YOU, GLENWOOD and all you have done for us. The staff at Valley View Hospital and Calaway Young Cancer Center were superb, we are so very lucky to have these facilities in our backyard. Please support them and tout their excellence as a premier place for treatment.

During this time our daughter Avery was at The Basic School on the Marine Corps Base at Quantico, Va., with the extra burden of dealing with the emotional trauma of yet another parent being treated for cancer. We are pleased to report she graduated TBS on May 8 as a 2nd lieutenant in the U.S. Marine Corps, and now goes to Pensacola, Fla., for flight school.

WE CELEBRATE YOU GLENWOOD for having a hand in bringing her up. You have played a significant role in sending out yet another member of our community to serve our country. Please pray for her and all those who have served/are serving in our Armed Forces.

Our son Connor, a sophomore at CSU studying construction management, spent Christmas break and the beginning of his spring semester worrying about his dad and trying to keep focused on his academics.

WE CELEBRATE YOU GLENWOOD for caring for the caregivers and keeping both Connor and I fed and so supported, from shoveling snow to raking our roof after those wicked snowstorms!

WE CELEBRATE YOU GLENWOOD and are so very, very thankful for all you have done for us. Craig continues to do well and has his first clean PET scan behind him! Glenwood, you have our utmost respect and love.

Craig, Ann, Avery and Connor Denney
