Readers Say Thanks

We were coming home from Denver on Thursday, May 18, in the late afternoon, when our right front tire blew while going around the curve just before the Shoshone power plant.

We would like to thank the motorist who called the Colorado Department of Transportation about our problem and the CDOT employees from the tunnel who came and helped us. Your kindness and help was and is very much appreciated.

On Friday, May 19, a breakfast was held at Glenwood Springs High School honoring the senior class and parents. The breakfast went very well and gave seniors a chance to enjoy their last day a little more.

The Glenwood Springs Village Inn was generous enough to donate pancake batter for the breakfast, and help make it a success. Also, GSHS faculty and parents were instrumental in making the breakfast a success. I would like to thank them all on behalf of the Class of 2006 at GSHS.

We are extremely grateful for the outpouring of love and support that family, friends and the entire community has shown us during this difficult time. Your thoughts, prayers, acts of generosity and kindness have been a comfort to us through our time of loss. Whether it was food, flowers, a phone call, an e-mail or a hug, we were deeply touched. Special thanks to the Carbondale EMTs who responded to the call, Dr. Stahl and the emergency room staff who worked so hard to keep John with us. Thank you to Dr. Gary Knaus for making a “house call” to comfort us with his medical knowledge. We are also most appreciative of all those who gave so much to help make his service a most beautiful tribute.

Thank you, too, for all contributions made to his memory, they will undoubtedly help keep his legacy alive. We will always keep John, Dad, “Gramps” in our hearts and memories.

On Saturday, May 20, the annual Glenwood Springs Police Department Bicycle Rodeo took place at Glenwood Elementary School, with scores of kids enjoying the obstacle course, free gifts, tune-ups for bikes, and free bike helmets. Six lucky kids’ names, from kindergarten through fifth grade, were drawn for new bicycles. Our winners this year were: Damien Stewart, Emily Carrington, Josh Merritt, Jonathan Montiel, Kyle Davis and William Carlson.

Dozens of free helmets were provided and fitted by volunteers from the Kiwanis Club, free sodas served by folks from Lowe’s, a climbing wall was provided and staffed by the National Guard, and Glenwood Police and Fire Department staff helped the kids register their bikes and enjoy the riding course. Safety checks and tune-ups, as well as five of our free bikes, were provided by the great staff at Mountain Sports Outlet. Our sixth bike was provided by Target. Lowe’s contributed for the bike purchases as well as other prizes. As always, the event was supported by the Elks Lodge, Glenwood Springs Chrysler and Ford, Sunrise Rotary, Safeway, US Bank, Alpine Bank, Bank of Colorado, Bighorn Motors, Knights of Columbus, Roaring Fork Volvo, IOOF, Berthod Motors and other local contributors.

It was another great event for our kids, and we thank the businesses and volunteers who assisted with the Bicycle Rodeo. Special thanks to Margaret, Levy and Carol, who always work so hard to organize the whole morning.
