Cards of Thanks

Jackie McGuire

Throughout Jackie’s illness and since her passing nearly a year ago now, countless kind community members held us up with love, prayers, fine meals, even financial support. Many are family or close friends, with some mere acquaintances. Still others, though strangers, felt the weight of our plight while offering genuine concern, perhaps in deference to similar circumstances of their own.

Whatever your motivation, we say to each of you, thank you … sincerely.

Your constant outpouring of comfort and compassion has made these most difficult days, weeks and months bearable. Rest assured, if you ever need us, we’re there.

With heartfelt love and abiding gratitude,

The McGuire, Skaja, Taufen, Theis, Trout and Whitcomb families


Habitat for Humanity of Archuleta County and the McQuiggin family would like to offer a big note of thanks to the Archuleta County Democratic Party for coming out on Friday, Sept. 24 to assist on the construction of House #21 — the house for Jim McQuiggin and his family. Everyone worked together so well and we got so much accomplished!

The ACDP showed the kind of community involvement and participation that makes Habitat for Humanity work, providing low-income families with not just a home but a chance at home ownership. With more participation from groups like the ACDP (and generous donations from all around), Habitat for Humanity could conceivably put even more low-income families into houses locally, and give those families a chance to become home owners in Archuleta County. With two houses completed in 2010, Habitat for Humanity of Archuleta County hopes to increase the number of houses it builds locally over the next few years.

Again, our heartfelt thanks to the ACDP for helping make dreams a reality!
