Alan Thomas died from a heart attack Aug. 11. The love and generosity that has poured out to us has been a great comfort. The communities of Meredith and Thomasville have the most loving people living there. We want to thank everyone who has reached out to us, giving us hope in our darkest time.With Alan’s help, we will learn to live with his death and maybe get past it, but we will never heal from the loss of a man like Alan Thomas. He was a man loved by many, and we are going to miss him dearly.Rachel ThomasThomasville

I would like to use this opportunity to give a big thank-you to Monk and Betty Dawson, Louis and Carol Dodo, Scherry Simonson and Pat Fuhst for submitting the name of the VIX Ranch for the north park in Castle Valley. Rev. Klein was my father-in-law, and I know if he were still alive, he would be very pleased by this choice. The VIX was his favorite place in this whole world.Thanks again for suggesting naming this park after the ranch.Beverly KleinNew Castle
