Humble thanks

Dear Editor:

This is a letter to the community to humbly thank everyone who was there for us in our time of need. We have been overwhelmed and humbled by the support we have received, and cannot begin to express in gratitude all the support we have received over the past eight months.

First we would like to thank all our family and friends who were there for us from the time the drunken driver hit us to the present. Now, we understand that our family, friends and religion are the most important aspects of our life.

Next we would like to thank Marolt LLP and the staff at Aspen Valley Hospital for all their moral and financial support while we were recovering in Denver at several different hospitals.

We would like to give special thanks to Roger Marolt, who wrote such a nice column in The Aspen Times; Kathleen Callahan, who has been helping us in every way since we have gotten out of Craig Hospital; Mike Marolt, who is having a fundraiser for us, showing his outstanding new movie; and Steve Marolt, who is working with the Catholic Church on getting a tax deduction for any individual who gives us a donation.

Also, we would like to give a special thanks to any individual who gave donations to us. We promise that any funds raised will go only to our daily living and medical expenses, not personal gain. And as soon as we can, we will give back to the community and the Catholic Church any additional moneys we earned.

Also we would like to thank Mayor Mick Ireland for providing punch passes to work out at the Aspen Recreation Center; the therapists who work at Valley View Hospital in Glenwood Springs; the Basalt fire district, the Basalt Police Department and the Valley Angels, who provide us with meals to eat twice a week. In addition we would also like to thank the doctors and nurses who were there after the wreck and provided any medical needs required upon our return. Finally, we would like to thank everyone who said prayers and lit candles for us, while we are continuing to heal.

Jeff Reese and Susan Grove
