Cards of Thanks

Thank You

I would like to thank everyone who participated, donated and otherwise stopped by just to say hi over the weekend for encouragement to get well.

Thank you!!

With all my heart,


Our Thanks

We would like to thank the Beulah Fire Department and the Sundance Fire Department for helping extinguish fire in some hay bales. A Special thanks to Allan and Ty Miller for their quick response. And for Allan bringing his skid steer to help move the bales. Also, to John Ayer for bringing his tractor to help with the moving of the bales. All of the equipment and manpower that responded is greatly appreciated. Also, a really special thank you to Denise Martin for notifying us that she noticed the smoke. We appreciate everyone that helped us.

Our Thanks

As the family of Ethel Chatfield, we have so many people to thank.

First, we want to acknowledge the Crook County Long Term Care staff. I cannot imagine more loving or compassionate care for her during those last few years.

The list of others to thank is far too long, but at the top is our church family at the Sundance Church of Christ, who have been absolutely the most amazing faith family anyone could ask for. From holding vigil during her last days through the Celebration of Life, our church family walked with us in such loving and beautiful ways.

Special thanks to Clark Printing in Spearfish for their peerless work, to Prime Rib Restaurant in Gillette for that fabulous meal following the service and to Stickman Cupcakes (Vicki Schommer), who topped it off with those delicious desserts.

Dalyce Sellers and Nathan Towell, your music was absolutely perfect, and seeing our own Brittany Ecton sing with you brought such joy. Johnnie and Jeanne Rogers, your tributes to our Mom/Grandmother could not have been chosen with more love nor been more perfect.

In addition, Serendipity created the extraordinary works of art we have all come to expect from them.

And for all of you who held us in your prayers, asked what we needed, attended the service, sent cards or donations to the memorial or stopped us in the street to share love, we are so very grateful. You all honor Mom as she deserved.

Our Love and Gratitude,

Terry and Cheryl Wales
