Letter: Farewell, valley, after 44 years

What a great run I’ve had in this beautiful valley. And now, after over 44 years, I am moving to Grass Valley, California, closer to my kids and grandbabies.

I have lurched, tumbled and raced through life here with love, tears, heartbreak, joy and lots of opportunities for growth. Luther and Leslie were born and raised here and thrived in the safety and closeness of the community. My career in nursing was varied and highly satisfying, allowing me to meet and care for so many.

But now it is time to say goodbye as a new chapter in life begins. To the community and all I have been privileged to know these many years, I’d like to leave you with this quote: “Please forgive me; I forgive you; thank you; I love you.”
