Readers Say Thanks

The Glenwood Springs Recreation Department would like to extend a special thank you to the Glenwood Springs Fire Department. Every Wednesday, June through July, the Recreation Department hosts special events for preschoolers ages 3-6. On Wednesday, July 11, the fire department made H2O day an event to remember. The children (and staff) were especially thrilled by your appearance, thank you for making the day extra fun.For more information on preschool programming, contact Barb Park at 384-6302 or visit Park, preschool program coordinator Glenwood Springs

Thank you to all who helped make Edith Rhodes more comfortable during the past few years. Edith was a very private person and preferred not to discuss her health, except on a need-to-know basis. Consequently, many were not aware of the seriousness of her situation. She was alert almost to the end, and chose to end her pain.These are just a few of those who helped Edith: the staff of Roaring Fork Family Physicians, with special thanks to doctors Gary Knaus and Rick Herrington; Gerry Newell, her friend of many years, whose help in the early cancer period was beyond measure; the folks at Heritage Park Care Center, particularly Dale Ulrich and his therapy staff over the past seven years, and more recently the administrative and nursing staff; Dorie, Janet, Nancy, Jo and all Edith’s friends in the Water Aerobics group; the Carbondale City Market pharmacy staff; the staff and neighbors at Carbondale Senior Housing. Edith was very emphatic in opposing any sort of memorial for her. We eventually disobeyed her wishes, but no bolts of lightning appeared, so she may not be too irked with us.We thank all those who attended, sent cards and just paused to express condolences.We know there are many folks we failed to mention. To all of you, we apologize.Madeline Oakley,Jack Sebestaand a host of nieces and nephewsCarbondale
