  3. It is with a heavy heart and much praying and soul searching to find a way to say how much grief I feel for your loss as my life and mrs stockman’s life tragically intersected on that terrible day. My name is zach tafoya I was the driver of the truck I was on my way to work at the federal bureau of prisons in florence so we shared the same general career path. I did not see her vehicle when we hit I replay in my mind if there was something I could have done but for the life of me I can not even recall what even happened. I just remembered the sounds and people I could not breathe from my collapsed lungs but I desperately tried to do what is always in my heart I tried to get out to help the other person but was not able. No words can Express how much this hurts me personally but I promise her every night as I tuck my children in bed that I will live my life in a way to somehow make the world a better place because surely it is without a soul that I never met but surely know was a light in the darkness of the world. Please understand there was nothing I could do I don’t have answers only our loving God knows the nature of these occurrences all I can do as a man is offer my deepest condolences.

  13. I was shocked to hear of Betty’s passing. Betty and I met about five years ago. She and I both attended the scrapbooking retreats at the Abbey in Canon City and I was lucky enough to have Betty as my “tablemate” for most of those retreats, and also a few scrapbooking/card classes that we took together in Pueblo. I watched as she delighted in planning and beautifully putting together scrapbook pages of the family she loved so dearly. She and I were also “traveling grandma” and we would swap tales of who was going where next! I was so blessed by her friendship, her sweet disposition, and her ready smile and laugh. She is, and will be dearly missed.
    I am sending heartfelt sympathy to all of Betty’s family, especially on this coming Monday, as I will be unable to attend Betty’s memorial service due to already made “traveling grandma plans”. You will all be in my heart and prayers. My hope is that you can find strength and comfort when you need it.

  14. I was so shocked to hear of Betty’s passing. I became friends with Betty a few years ago in a scrapbooking group. We went to several retreats at the Abbey. Betty was such a gentle, kind soul and I am blessed to have known her. Godspeed sweet Betty. I offer my heartfelt condolences and many prayers to Bob and the family.

  15. Bob & family, So shocked to hear of Betty’s passing. Spoke to Betty at the Garage-ma hall and shared a few laughs. Please accept our condolences, our thoughts and prayers.

  16. We were so sad to hear of Betty’s passing. We (her circle of friends at the “y”) will miss her beautiful smile and wonderful stories. She was a treasure. We will meet again in Heaven. You were always the first to get to the “Y” and save us seats. Now you are the first to go to Heaven to save us seats there. We will see you then. Love, Elaine Lewis and the rest of the girls…
