Shanklin family: With gratitude

We would like to extend heartfelt thanks to all who helped honor our beloved family member Mary Shanklin for her memorial service and dinner at Yampa Bible Church on April 6. So many kind people visited and encouraged, helped prepare for her service, cooked and baked, donated food, provided financial gifts, set up tables, brought beautiful flowers, spoke kind words, completed a sewing project, worked on the sound system, composed letters, washed dishes and more dishes, attended the service, shared memories and so much more.

We hope to be thanking all of you in person as we see you around the South Routt community. The thought of even leaving one person out was unthinkable, so we hope you know you are all so loved, so appreciated. Mary would be honored to know the love and care you showed in all you did.
