Thanks to all who helped Thelma Matheson

To the Editor:
At the request of Thelma Matheson and on behalf of the entire Matheson family, we would like to express our heartfelt gratitude and thankfulness to the staff and doctors at Kremmling Memorial Hospital and Mountain Valley Medical Center, all of whom were a part of Thelma’s care this past year.
Thelma frequented the emergency room at odd hours and had a couple of hospital stays as well, and she was always treated with professional efficiency and expertise.
Just as importantly, you took the time to know her, you treated her with respect and you truly cared about her as a person. And a special thank you to the two doctors that saw her the most, Dr. Telck and Dr. Wagner.
Thelma thought so much of you both and you made a difficult year easier simply by being the exceptional doctors and the wonderful individuals that you are.
Thanks to Janice McDonough and Theresa Wright at Grand County Home Health Nursing Services for all your help with Thelma at home. And to Carol Kelly and Lisa Wild of Heart of the Mountains Hospice, no words can express how grateful we are to have had your caring, experienced help in our journey in helping Thelma finish living her life. Your presence was a safe harbor in the storm, so to speak, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
We find great comfort in knowing Thelma passed away peacefully in her home, with loved ones present, on Dec. 5.
And to everyone that came to visit Thelma, called her, sent her a card or brought food up for the family, your thoughtfulness and generosity was very much appreciated.
And to our dear and special friends, Pete and Carol Petersen, please know that for all your time, help, thoughtfulness and many acts of kindness, we are forever deeply grateful. You went above and beyond the call of friendship and we suspect you are angels, sent to help us through a difficult time. Because of people like you, with such caring and giving spirits, there is no doubt that the heart of life is good.
The Matheson Family
