Bill (Bentson),

I want to thank you and all the wonderful people of Chatfield who made my wife, Linda, and me feel so very welcome.  We enjoyed the day so much.  It was a fantastic parade.  By far the best one we have had this year.

Also please convey my thanks and appreciation to Gretchen Lovejoy for the great story she did about me.  It was such a heartwarming portrayal of what we try to do.  She is a talented writer and has a wonderful way with words.

Randy invited us back for next year's parade and you can be assured that we will return if at all possible.

Everyone who was involved in this year's parade did a masterful job.  We enjoyed staying around down at the park.

Thanks again for everything.
