Letter: Thanks from family of Eric Hill

To the great community of the Eagle Valley: It is difficult to fathom that our beloved husband, father, son and brother Eric Hill has been gone a month now.

Our hearts are still broken and will be forever healing. The tears will never stop flowing, the pain is unbearable and the whys will never stop, but we must continue to prevail to be strong and move forward to the best of our ability.

We would like to let our friends, family and community know how deeply grateful we are to all of you for coming to our aid during such a tragic time in our lives.

Thank you for the beautiful cards, flowers, kind words, prayers, stories, contributed gifts and all the wonderful food donated to our family and fire department(s). Our cup has runneth over.

We will not be able to name everyone, but we do want to take a moment to thank the community. We want to especially thank everyone who helped make Eric’s memorial the amazing and captivating moment that he deserved: Eagle County Manager Jeff Shroll, Gypsum Fire Department, Greater Eagle Fire Department, Eagle River Fire Department, Cedaredge Fire Department, Vail Fire Department, town of Gypsum, town of Eagle, Eagle County Sheriff’s Department, Eagle Police Department, Colorado State Patrol, Vail Police Department, Victim Services, Eagle County Ambulance District, Big Steve’s Towing, Bronn’s Towing, Western Slope Towing, Lucas Towing, Helping Hand, Wells Fargo Bank, Canyon Cleaners in Silt, City Market, Flower Patch and Fancy Pansy. If we have missed or left anyone out, we apologize.

If you see us around don’t be afraid to say hello or share a story or to just simply give us a hug. It truly helps us to know we are still thought of and it is very healing as we go through this difficult time of disbelief, unbelievable sadness and pain.

Please be safe and don’t forget to give one more kiss, an extra bear hug and a loving thought to your loved ones before you walk out the door. Sincerest thanks.

The family of Eric Hill
