Thanks to those who have cared

Editor:

The family of George VanLeeuwen wishes to express gratitude and appreciation to all those who so compassionately cared for him during his final months and for all those who shared memories, expressed condolences, sent flowers and make charitable contributions in his memory.

Time in SH has

been ‘wonderful’

Editor:

I would like to express my gratitude to all of the wonderful people in Sweet Home, Linn County, and the surrounding areas for their friendliness and support.

From the time I was growing up in Liberty, Sweet Home has had a special place in my heart. I remember its beauty and remember the times my friends and I came into Sweet Home to swim and to skate at the skating rink. Sweet Home reminded me of a town in a well known show called Lost Horizon. Just like that town, Sweet Home touched my heart and that is why I moved here.

I feel honored not only to have lived here, but also to have had the community support our efforts when we opened The Point restaurant May 20, 1970.

I would especially like to thank my late husband, Lew, my brother-in-law, Clay, my sister, Francis, and my mother, Barbara Klees. I feel that they may not have received the recognition they deserved for their effort and contributions.

I would also like to thank the City Fathers, Michael Hall (who continues to serve great food at The Point), all the wonderful employees of The Point (past and present), and all the good people of Sweet Home for their support.

Finally, I would like to thank Saint Helen’s Catholic Church for welcoming me into their flock and thank Signature Hospice for all of the support they have been giving me.

Sweet Home has been a wonderful place live, has produced many wonderful people, and helped produce a wonderful restaurant called The Point. And am I very thankful for that.
