Letters | Ron Swanson’s family thankful for love

Words cannot express the overwhelming gratitude we feel for the hundreds of people who reached out with love, support, help and wrapped their arms around our family, and Ron Swanson’s entire family (following his death).

There is no possible way to thank everyone individually, but we would like to give special thank yous to: Monty Wright and the Snoqualmie Valley Alliance Church, the Botten family, Kevin, Lisa Rae and the entire Riley family, Deanna and Shelley Riley, the anonymous people who donated money so Ron’s children could pick out flowers for his service, Frankie’s Pizza, all of our friends and family, the #JS_Hillbillies, the Barter families, the Eads family and Mount Si Golf Course for your gracious and generous use of the golf course. Thank you to the special ladies preparing special gifts for Ron’s children.

Thank you for showing Ron’s children what it means to come from and be a part of this kind of community and Valley. Thank you to everyone who brought food, meals, cards, and flowers.

With our deepest gratitude and love,

Lia Gunderon; Nick, Erin, Autumn, & Amanda Swanson; and Ron’s entire family,

North Bend
