Thanks for caring

My family and I would like to thank A Grassroots Aspen Experience, the parents and children at Aspen Country Day School, the Kids to Kids program, the people of Aspen, and everyone who donated their time, effort and resources to make this the greatest experience of our lifetime.

We arrived, not knowing what to expect. What we found was a community of warmth and love. Our children had the time of their lives.

They learned to ski, snowboard and snowmobile. They made a host of new friends, and re-established relationships with other firefighter families.

I am in awe of all the people of Aspen. You will always be in our hearts.

I would also like to thank our local host family, Cindy and Christopher Allison, for making us a part of their family. They went out of their way to make us feel right at home. I know our friendship will continue.

Again, thank you Aspen for a wonderful week, for all the lasting memories, and for caring.

Lynne Ruback, David,

Gina and Shannon
