Letter: Storm King mother: You didn’t forget

A big thank-you to all the folks of Glenwood Springs and the surrounding communities for the wonderful events provided for the 20th anniversary of the terrible fire on Storm King Mountain. Your original words of “we will not forget” have again rung true in the hospitality you provided for friends and families of the deceased. I am sure there was much time, money, effort and organization given by many folks.

The events were very organized and we especially enjoyed the barbecue Saturday night where we could mingle with those we have not seen for several years as well as make new friends. Thanks to those who provided helicopter rides to folks that were unable to hike up Storm King Mountain to the crosses. It is a good hike and makes one realize the steep terrain of the area. It was also nice having the Craig and Prineville Hotshots helping with the events.

A special thank-you to our family representative, Greg Little, who has been there for us the past 20 years. He has been wonderful and is now part of our family.

God bless all of you.
