  1. Barbara,

    On behalf of the Latino Chamber of Commerce of Pueblo Board and Staff, I send to you our deepest sympathy.

    Sandy Gutierrez, Latino Chamber of Commerce of Pueblo – President & CEO

  2. Dear Barbara, I was so sorry to hear about Gordon. He was always so friendly and courteous when I visited with him at the club and I do miss seeing you both since I have retired. My best to you and your family.

  3. Dear Butch and Terri,
    It was with great saddness that we learned of your fathers passing. It’s hard to know just what to say because your loss is so great and we know your Father will be missed in so many ways. Words seem so inadequate to express our sympathy for your loss but please know we are thinking of you and praying for you and your Mother in this time of grieving.
    With love and sympathy,
    Dennis and Annette

  4. Dear Butch and Terry,
    My deepest sympathies are with you. We are never ready for such an event. I hope to talk to you soon…Stop into 12’s when you can.

  5. I know that you don’t know me. I’ m just a neighbor who lives around the corner at 300 W. Burke Dr. At 7:30 every morning, the Schnauzers behind me would start yipping and yipping signaling Mr. Stevens and Sami on their daily walk starting about 4 years ago. Sami would greet my two Goldens, Tahoe and Sequoia, through the fence and then we would meet them at the street. Sami was such a puppy and a hand full for Mr. Stevens. For several years of this ritual, he would ask, “Would Sami ever be mellow like your girls?’ I said someday! Over the last couple of years, Sami matured somewhat. Tahoe passed at age 16 of cancer and the following year, Sequoia at age 17 also passed of cancer. Still at 7:30 in the morning the Schnauzers announced the daily walk and I still looked forward to greeting Sami and Mr. Stevens at the mailbox. I had realized lately there was no barking at 7:30 or maybe I slept through that time; but then Sunday morning I read the paper. It saddens me deeply to know of Mr. Stevens passing. I know he will be missed by all; and I know he and Sami had a special bond as I did with my Goldens. I would love, someday, to have the opportunity to take Sami on a walk and Mr. Stevens did. Sincerely, Caryl Redmond
