Barnes family: Many Thanks

To the editor:


Those two little words will NEVER show our gratitude to the known, as well as the unknown, people who came to our aid after our home burned down Dec. 17, 2012.

Thanks to all of you, our three children had a wonderfully awesome Christmas, new clothes to go to school in and winter clothes to keep them warm — the things that were most important to them at the time. The counties’ outpour of love, caring and graciousness has made this nightmare a lot easier to deal with!

There are a few people that need an extra THANK YOU: Kasey and Kyle Lyons for leaving their warm home to make sure we were safe; Shayne and Linda Sperry for allowing their home to become the drop-off center; the VNA for going above and beyond administering medical care; Moffat County School District for making sure our kids never missed a beat when they returned to school; and Gary and Diane Brannan for giving us a home.

There are a lot more of you out there!

Just know, Moffat county, your graciousness will never be forgotten!

Thank you,

Rick, Tami, Thomas, Levi and Kristi Barnes
