Gail Canto: Our loved one
To the editor:
Recently, my husband and I had pleasurably been caring for my late father-in-law Mr. Emanuel Robert Canto in our home and put both our self-employment businesses on hold. It was a special time of extra care and effort in support of our much loved in-law, and yet a very satisfying time to be able to spend treasured time caring for this worthy veteran. We are thankful as a family, my husband, myself and our son, to the Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association caretakers in both Steamboat Springs and Craig, to Deb Earnst for her honest and kind help, to Cathy Darveau and Mary Dean, of the VNA, who were the most supportive and efficient help to us, always there when needed, kind and compassionate and informative and to Sandy Beran, our compassionate hospice support lady with the big heart. We are also thankful to the ambulance crew, great work and efficiency, friendly and extremely professional, and to the caregivers Dianne, Tyler and Michelle for their welcomed help in the later days. Dr. Kipe, we also wish to thank you for your services and attention to our needs and all of the wonderful staff and doctors at The Memorial Hospital for their goodness and extra kindness and comfort. Furthermore, we thank the Grant Mortuary of Craig, Owen, Jesse, Sunni and Amanda for their utmost help in gathering together some of our elderly veterans who were so generous of their time to volunteer the excellent flag folding ceremony for our loved one, and extending customer service above and beyond. Thank you to our veterans. Thank you, everyone; we love our community and customers alike, and, as we both have now returned to our businesses, we were welcomed back nicely. This is such a nice friendly town to be.
