Finally, and far from least on my list of thanksgiving, comes the most important cog in the whole Loveland Beacon machine. Thank you so very much to my wife Susan Gibson. Without you Susan, without your patience and understanding as the news day runs long, interrupts our plans, delays our dinners, and steals away far too many precious moments, without you Susan, I could not do this. For you Susan, I am most thankful this day and every day! God has blessed me with you and I hope His blessings are abundantly yours today and all your days to come.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! I am grateful to know and serve you.
Chuck Gibson – Loveland Beacon
