Cards of Thanks
November 21, 2019
Mere words don’t convey our sincere gratitude to all of you, for all you did for our family while we were attempting to deal with Barry’s death. To all the ladies that provided food for the reception following Barry’s service, thank you. To the Masons and the Color Guard that did such a splendid job, we so appreciate it. Most of all we treasure all of your friendships. Friends are one of the things that keep our boat afloat. With such grateful hearts, we thank you all.
Dorothy and all of Barry’s family
Blessings in a Backpack would like to thank PRECorp Foundation, Hulett Lions Club, Neiman Sawmill, Sundance State Bank, Merle Clark and the Carriers for recent donations. Their continued support of our program is greatly appreciated.
We are serving 23 students this school year, sending home food for three days, on the last day of the school week. We also provided nine food bags to students over the summer months.
We will again do Thanksgiving and Christmas food boxes.
Thank you again for your support.

To the Good People of Sundance Wyoming,
They say that Wyoming is a small town with very long streets. I can attest to that. From the moment I popped my head out of my crushed and crumpled vehicle, on a miserable, icy, November morning last week, I never felt alone.
Within minutes, Chris with Wyoming Game & Fish stopped, gave me invaluable assistance and got me safely to a warm place; this he did during a game warden’s busiest time of year. My gratitude to you Chris.
My thanks to EMT Anthony and Officer Rose, who were both on the scene and later found me in town to wrap up paperwork and give me moral support. The folks at the Bear Lodge Motel found room for me and assured me that I could stay until I sorted out transportation.
Gus at Iron Horse Towing went the extra mile arranging with me to get my belongings taken care of. Thank you, Gus.
And thank you to the wait staff at Higbee’s and the Longhorn. A meal and a beer never tasted as good as the one I sunk into at the Longhorn the night of the accident.
I realize that everyone was “just doing their job” but they did it with grace and compassion and turned a terrible experience into an event full of caring people. Every wave and small kindness was so appreciated under these circumstances.
I was the gal with long gray hair and a blue stocking cap who you made part of your community for a difficult 24 hours. There are no strangers in your town.
Love to Sundance,
