George Roberts: Thank you for helping my family
Our family is huge by family standards. We have seven children and even with the minimal work I am able to perform, we hardly ever can afford many things and my family would hope that this can serve as a huge thank you letter to the people that have gone out of their way to help my family.
We have four special needs children and therefore we need the help of many therapists and social services, special education teachers and administration. To all of you we sincerely want to thank you all for your caring, understanding, trust and faith that we are doing all we can for our children.
To those who are part of Angel Tree. All I can say is OMG. These children had the best Christmas ever in their lives and the outpouring of kindness from all of you had tears of joy rolling on Christmas Eve.
To the Police fund, to the Grand County Foundation, Fraser Valley Rec Center for providing places and funds in order that our children can have therapy at your center. We thank you so very much as well. To Grand Lake Log Homes, Peggy and Glenn Rabe and Roberta Hovermale and the amazing therapists from Horizons we thank you for work, for your caring, for your patience and every ounce of love that pours out for our children.
To the teachers in this school district, to Nancy Karas, Mrs. Rothbeck, we thank you for bending over backwards to do everything and then some for our children and providing them a safe learning environment.
To the Grand County Courts for getting our children out of a mess, particularly Judge McClelland for taking action. To Chief Housley, for taking our family under his wing and stepping in at the school for our daughter, thanks.
Many people this year have stepped up and helped my family this year and we just can’t say enough. May God Bless every single one of you. Lastly we want to thank every doctor from Mark Paulsen and his staff at Middle Park Medical to All of those at Childrens Hospital in Aurora. You have more than once saved the life of my son and for that I cannot thank you enough.
