Thanks for help after fire
On Tuesday we had a small fire at our home. Fortunately no one was hurt during the incident.
We would like to thank several individuals for what they did and have done for us. We have always known we lived in a very wonderful neighborhood (Westcliffe), and we now know how wonderful it is.
We want to thank all of our neighbors who have asked if we needed their help, and we want to say a special thanks to our neighbor Norman, who was quick to react and come to our childrenís assistance.
We also want to thank the men and women of the Salisbury and Locke Fire Departments for their quick response and the care they took in making sure our children and pets were safe. We see these brave men and women everyday as we drive by their fire stations, but donít really notice them until something happens and we need their help. Our daughter Brandi sends a special thank you to Chief Parnell, who assisted her in trying to find her lost cat, Bit-Bit. He was found hiding in the back yard. And thanks to the members of the Salisbury Fire Departmentís Quint 2, who went into the smoking house and saved our dog.
Last but not least, we want to thank our friends and co-workers who have offered us their help and prayers during these trying times.
We greatly appreciate everyone. It just goes to show how wonderful this community is as a whole.
ó Sandra, Brandi, Arthur & Adam Slawski
Salisbury
