Letter: Thankful for the generosity of friends, strangers


I continue to thank so many people for making it possible for me to pay for my basic household expenses while I am away from home and work, and am staying in Denver attending the trial of the accused murderer of my beloved great-niece, Jessica Ridgeway. I’ve received lots of support in Denver for my lodging and other expenses there, but I wouldn’t be able to pay my monthly bills without so many friends’ and strangers’ generosity.

Thanks to my friend and neighbor, Marice Doll, for helping me with the photo show and spreading the word about the event. A huge thank you to Andy Lotsberg and the Bluebird Café for offering his great venue for displaying my photography. And, to my friends who purchased my offerings and now have a great photo to decorate their walls, I will never forget your support.

I am continually amazed at what a wonderful community I live in and the friends who have supported me during this difficult time. Jessica’s death has been the worst shock that could ever happen to any family. I will do my best in the coming years to give back to the community that has given me so much emotional support, love, sympathy and donations. There is always someone out there who needs help in some way, even if it’s just a hug or a word of encouragement. You offered me all of that, and more. Because of you, I will feel a little less alone in the coming months.
