Readers say thanks

My son Tanner and I would like to thank Chief Scott Thompson and other responders of the Basalt and Rural Fire Department Stations 41 and 42 who helped fight a fire at our home in Thomasville on Wednesday night, Feb. 27.

It was a long, cold ride for some of those involved, and we very much appreciate your dedication in what you do as firefighters.

Also a very special thanks to Captain Ken Jammaron and the rest of my comrades at Station 43 in Thomasville. Had it not been for their quick response and conservative use of the limited water supply, we most certainly would have lost our entire home.

They were able to hold this fire to the areas already on fire at arrival until crews from Basalt could arrive with added resources. It was truly a matter of minutes before our house would have been totally engulfed in flames.

Also thanks to friends, family and community members who have offered support in this time of need. As we have learned, something like this can happen to anyone at any time, so when you get a chance to support the emergency services in your community, please do so. It is very reassuring to know someone will come running when the need arises. Thanks again to all those who helped us.

Duane Vasten, Basalt and Rural Fire Department, Station 43, Meredith

Also addressed: To Louis, from Grand Valley Christian Church of Parachute

We can not fully express our gratitude to you after our mother’s passing.

She had only attended your church a few times. And at a very dark time in our lives, you held out your hand, and asked if you could make our burden a little lighter. You did just that.

You went above and beyond ” you, Denise and your entire congregation. The memorial was beautiful, your words uplifting, and it was evident how much work you put into preparing food and cleaning up after everyone.

We were, to say the least, shocked and touched that there are still such beautiful souls in the world.

Thank you.

Leesa Weist and the Weist family
