Readers Say Thanks

To all our Glenwood Springs family, we wish to acknowledge with sincere thanks the kind expression of your sympathy as we bid Buddy (Charles Henry) goodbye from this earthly life. Thank you so much for the beautiful cards, the overwhelming attendance at the funeral, your friendship, support and love. Your presence meant so much to us, and we want to acknowledge our appreciation to each and every one of you.

Buddy, aka The Cookie Man, a 12-year resident of Glenwood Springs, would walk to City Market every afternoon for his cookie and sip of coffee.

When he became ill and resided in Glen Valley Nursing Home, no one knew where he was until one day a cake was delivered to Glen Valley, and the City Market delivery service opened the door and said, “There he is, The Cookie Man. We wondered what happened to you.”

Thanks, Glen Valley angels, for taking care of Buddy with compassionate, perpetual smiles.

Thank you, Boy Scouts of America Troop #225, for honoring Buddy, World War II veteran and Eagle Scout, with the utmost of respect and dignity.

Thank you Glenwood Springs; how blessed we are to live in such a caring community.

The Henry family
