To all the people who helped me through the very trying time that I went through, I thank you from the center of my heart. You have encouraged me and also directed me into the life that I must lead. I have taken these words and put them into action. As many had seen before I left, I have improved my life 100 percent. I have become an even better person. That is why I say thank you. I was headed in a destructive path, and I saw and I learned.I am doing great here. My life is showing huge opportunities. Even in one week since I left, many opportunities have shown themselves to me. I will be just fine.I will miss everyone who was in my life there. My prayers will always be with you. Thank you all.

Not enough gratitude, respect and recognition go out to our local veterinarians, vet techs and vet office personnel. So, we would like to publicly thank Valley Vet Clinic in Rifle for the loving care of all their special critters and their thoughtfulness to the pet owners. Our two dogs have always loved going back to see Dr. Boland, Dr. Rubio and everyone at the clinic, no matter what. They know better than anyone else who treats them with kindness, who always showers them with affection and who doles out all the treats when they’re done. Now especially, everyone at Valley Vet Clinic has gone above and beyond for us when our yellow Lab, Bailey, was not doing well with cancer. They called us and saw us after hours when needed. They took such good care of Bailey for months until the very end, and loved her as we did. We will always be truly grateful. Mark, Debra and Katie BrielsRifle
