Letter of thanks: For the help of family, friends after loss

I just want to express my love and appreciation to my daughter, Nancy Gilmore, who has done so much for me since her dad, my husband, Jim Zuvela, passed away in April.

She has gone through endless drawers and boxes of “stuff.” painted the bedroom, ordered wall coverings, and so much more, plus has been here for me when I needed her even when she was suffering grief herself. My sons-in-law, Kurt Gilmore and Brad Martin made their way through the garage and organized so much in there that I can’t even imagine! Also, Wayne Wilson, the handyman and friend who works for our office, installed a new sink and garbage disposal in my kitchen and put new ceiling lights in the hallway, bathroom and kitchen, and installed the window coverings with Kurt’s help.

The love that has been expressed from my daughter, Kathleen Martin, and from my grandchildren, is beyond anything that I ever expected. My thanks to each one, and to God, who has seen me through this difficult time in our lives. Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
