  3. Dear Beatrix, John and Chenoweth family:

    I wish to express my deepest condolence to you on the death of your father, Jack Chenoweth. I know no words can ease the loss you bear. The untimely death of a parent is difficult to accept and understand.

    May you, however, find comfort in knowing that others at Pueblo County care and share in your sorrow. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy and know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your families.

    Jack had an outstanding career: service to his Country, FBI Special Agent, and an investigator for Pueblo County. We appreciated his many years of service. He made a difference in our community and we are grateful. May your memories be of comfort to you.

    Sincerely,

    Matt J. Peulen
