Family thanks first responders on Christmas eve

Dear Editor:

Thank you to the first responders of Dolores and Cortez.

We would like to thank the emergency responders who answered our 911 call at 11 p.m. on Dec. 24, 2012. They not only interrupted their Christmas holiday but overcame extremely difficult driving conditions during the white out weather conditions. They conducted themselves with compassion and kindness that will not be forgotten.

Our community is blessed to have these great people.

Again, thank you.

Ray Patterson and family

Yellow Jacket
