Readers Say Thanks

The family of Steven Boyd Owens would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to all who sent cards, flowers, and food, and also for the many phone calls, thoughts and prayers during the search for Steve and his brother-in-law, Mike White, and the difficult days that followed. Thank you to all who attended the memorial and celebration of his life. Your presence and kind words gave us support and comfort. Special thanks to the Paonia American Legion for providing the dinner. Thank you to John Salamida and the Shirt Stop crew in Carbondale.

Special thanks to all Steve and Mike’s friends who searched and found them. We appreciate all of our wonderful friends, neighbors and relatives, more than words can say. Thank you to Michele Ferrere and the Taylor Funeral Service for their kindness and help.

The Glenwood Springs Elks Lodge had another record year at Strawberry Days this year. I would like to take this time to thank the businesses and people that helped us in this successful endeavor:

The Chamber of Commerce (Sheila), without whose help this event would not run smoothly; LaFarge (Phil Long), which provides us with “the grill” to make the wonderful sausage; Coors (Kevin and Dwayne), for allowing us the use of a cooler in their truck; the 19th Street Diner (Swanee), for bailing us out when items were low; and the Kiwanis Club, for their vigilant trash pickup.

A huge thank-you to the people in our community who enjoyed our food booth and helped us to raise money for our Perpetual Scholarship Fund. This fund assists our local kids get scholarships for college. Without the support you provide, we wouldn’t be able to accomplish what we do.

I truly wanted to thank Farnum Holt and also the city of Glenwood Springs for donating the funds to bury my best friend, Thomas Michael Gagner. He was a homeless man who made some bad choices, but he had such a good and loving heart.

All of you people have brought so much faith back into my life, and for this I am so grateful. Tommy thanks you, too.
