KC Hammer: Grand County’s Best

I’d like to thank the Parshall Fire Department’s Bill Dixon and crew, Hot Sulphur Springs Fire Department’s Brad White and Crew, Kremmling Fire Department’s Tony Tucker and crew, East Grand Fire Department Captain and Crew, Grand County Sheriffs Office staff, Grand County Road and Bridge, and anyone else I left out.

You guys did an amazing job. Watching the total team effort you gave fighting the fire at the Parshall General Store was awesome. And to some of you very personal as well. Thank you so much.

And to all my friends and neighbors who were there and to those of you who had my cell phone exploding with calls of notification and concern, you guys are amazing too. I’m so lucky I live where I live in Grand County; you’re the greatest, thank you so much.

I’m not one for writing letters but I know my parents would want to say thank you if they were here. Had they only made a different choice before they left I wouldn’t be writing this letter. That’s a given.

And a very special thank you to Gary and Jen Bumgarner: What you two did that night after the fire goes beyond what words can describe. How very special that was. What you did was why I’ve lived here the last 30-plus years.

Thanks everyone.

KC Hammer
