Readers Say Thanks

How do we express our appreciation to all the wonderful people who made mom’s life, particularly her final 10 days, such joy? As it became apparent her time would be short, a comment she made was, “But I have so many people I want to make happy yet.”

It is such a comfort for us that with the help of Roaring Fork Hospice she was able to be in her home to express her love for many and to bask in the warmth of the love, hugs, smiles, flowers, phone calls, visits, and cards of family and friends to her final breath. Then you all encircled us with the same tender caring as we dealt with her passing and funeral.

“Thank you” seems terribly inadequate, but it actually speaks volumes. Thank you all again and again for the memories, food, support, calls, visits, letters, cards, flowers and help.

My name is Jason Troyer. I am a Boy Scout from Troop 242 in Basalt. On my journey to becoming an Eagle Scout, the highest rank in Boy Scouting, I was required to complete a project that is a benefit to the community. For my project, I made a set of stairs up the hill on the Swinging Bridge path in Basalt. The project took me and many other volunteers over 100 hours of work to complete, but labor wasn’t the only necessity of the project. Materials were crucial to the project’s completion. With the help and donations of local businesses, I was able to complete the stairs at a very small price.

These businesses include Valley Lumber with their contribution of ties and stakes, Welch Excavation with their endowment of an excavator and a load of road base free of charge, and Timbo’s Pizza with a free lunch for the volunteers.

I can’t thank the town of Basalt (especially Robie) enough for all their help and encouragement. A big thank-you goes out to them and all the volunteers that helped me out on my journey.
