Vail Daily letter: God’s speed

Chuck McGuire
Vail, CO, Colorado

I am saddened to hear of the passing of three Vail area residents I knew so well. They, and countless others, became close friends during the 19 glorious years I lived among the shaddows of Gore Range (1976 to 1995).

Dale McCall, Tim Cochrane and young Tucker Thissen all made fine marks on the Eagle Valley society, while giving greatly of themselves to help forge it. I shall fondly remember them, always.

It seems, as old age gradually creeps up on me, that sadness and loss are becoming all too familiar. As it was with all previous generations, I suppose it is now, with mine.

Nevertheless, life is good and worth living, for those we’ve known, who’ve gone before us, left us with love in our hearts and treasured memories that will never fade.

Many years have now passed since I last saw or spoke with Dale, Tim and Tucker, but the mere mention of their names still brings a smile to my face. As has often been said, “It is better to have loved and lost, than to have never loved at all.

God’s speed, my friends.
