Readers Say Thanks

I would like to thank the entire community for their generosity and support through high school.

Individual thanks go out to the Glenwood Springs Elks Lodge; Glenwood Springs Police Department; Glenwood Springs Sunrise Rotary; Glenwood Springs Association of Realtors; Dalby, Wendland and Co.; Antlers Motel and Trashmasters International for their contribution to higher education.

Last Thursday after scholarship night at Glenwood Springs High School, it was an emotional time for my family and me, knowing the majority of college was paid for. Seeing watered eyes and a face of relief on my mother was amazing, and I appreciate your contribution. Without these scholarships, it would have been very difficult to pay for college. Your generosity is greatly appreciated by me and my family.

Thank you,

On May 21, my wife entered Valley View Hospital for surgery to correct a deviated nasal septum and acute sinusitis. The operation was a success, and she is recovering at home.

I wanted to say thank you to the wonderful staff that we came in contact with at the hospital. Although I can not remember all your names, you know who you are. You were all very professional, and yet your caring and compassion were obvious.

I particularly want to thank Dr. Matthew Goodstein and his surgical crew, whose competence and professionalism are top-notch. Dr. Goodstein has an outstanding bedside manner reminiscent of a doctor I knew when I was a youngster.

Even going near a hospital can many times be very intimidating. Our experience at Valley View was quite the opposite. Thanks again to everyone.
