Readers say thanks

Having emergency open heart surgery with a valve replacement at 39 years old has been a life-renewing experience. All of the love and support I’ve received from so many of you has been overwhelming and very much appreciated.

Thank you to all who sent flowers, plants and cards, and also a big thanks to all of you that made the delicious dinners for our family the last couple of weeks. You find out how many friends you have when something like this happens, and I would say I’m very blessed with so many caring friends!

I must also say thank you to the doctors who got me through this: Dr. Lippman Sr. and his nurse Shelly, Dr. Feinsinger, Dr. Al Saliman, Dr. Albrecht (the new cardiologist) and all of those at Valley View Hospital and St. Mary’s Hospital, including my heart surgeon Dr. Mary Wollmering and cardiologist Dr. Marcus Howell. I was very fortunate to have these amazing doctors on my side.

My recovery is going very well thanks to all of the love, caring, support, thoughts and prayers from all of you. I am ever so grateful and don’t know how I could ever thank you all enough! What a great community we live in!

I would like to publicly thank all the people involved with the Glenwood Springs High School volleyball season.

The team players were magnificent. You are true champions.

The coaches, Denise Green, Scott Nykerk and Jocelyn Anderson, were inspirational. Thank you and your families for all your dedication and extra time.

The school staff, principal Mike Wells and athletic director Steve Cable and all the other support staff were so helpful. Thanks for all your support all the extended season. And a big thank you to the community of Glenwood Springs. Two weeks later and I still hear comments from other towns about the big red section of cheering Glenwood Springs fans. You were awesome! All season.

A parent proud to live in Glenwood Springs,
