Readers Say Thanks

On behalf of my family and myself, I would like to send a heartfelt thank-you to my wonderful friends and the community of Glenwood Springs, for the support provided to us after the passing of Dan H. LeVan. Great compassion and sympathy was shared through the abundance of food, flowers, cards, phone calls and hugs. The gracious giving towards the “Dan LeVan Veterans’ Memorial Day Memorial” has been very generous. Dan will be greatly missed, but, with the love that has been shared by all of you, I know God’s peace and blessings will flow our way.A special and sincere thank-you goes to the Glenwood Springs Fire/Paramedic Department, Garfield County Dispatching and Valley View Hospital Emergency Room, all of whom were so professional and yet compassionate during our time of need in Dan’s passing.Pat LeVan and familyGlenwood Springs

We wish to thank the many, many people who came around to help and to show their support for us after our daughter Kindall died in July. The outpouring of flowers, cards, food, calls, and visits was truly unbelievable. We appreciate each and every gesture. Also, a very sincere thanks to all who contributed to Kindall’s Memorial Fund, all funds will be put towards a memorial bench in the local park, and to the Sudden Unexplained Death in Children (SUDC) organization. Although we personally thank all who contributed, there is, unfortunately no record of cash contributors. So, to those people: thank you so very much, your thoughts for our family mean so much. Since Kindall’s death, we have found hope and support through SUDC, which is affiliated with the CJ Foundation for SIDS; however, they also address information and statistics on children ages 1-16 who die unexpectedly or of unexplained causes. This organization we truly believe is eventually going to help us (through their research project) know how and why Kindall died. This is a wonderful community that has shown amazing kindness and support to us at this terrible time. Thank you all so much. Joe, Kim, Caylee Colbert New Castle
