My wife Kelly passed away about three years ago and so on Sunday we were doing something to celebrate her. For Mother's Day and so my son Evan and I. Wrote a letter to her which we do every year and we tied to some balloons and we. Send it out. Into the sky for her. Unfortunately a Sunday morning we. What the balloons go in the last minute day big gust the winds took it right into. Of course the the tallest branches. Of our tree in the front yard. We are very upset obviously I'm disappointed. And united was heartbroken and so I didn't know what else to do or or how to solve the problems. And so I I contacted the folks at west metro fire district and they were all. Kind enough and generous enough to donate their time and resources to come out. And help us out they came here today. To town the balloons. Retrieved the letter that we had written and for just. Incredibly thankful. For everything that they've done for us in just a very kind gesture.
