Sincere apology

Dear Editor:

Dear Local Veterans,

Please accept my sincere apologies for missing the Memorial Day Services at the American Legion Hall and cemetery last Monday. I should have, but did not, have it on my schedule. I won’t make the same mistake again. I want every veteran to know how much I value you, your service and your sacrifice. All who have served, especially those who gave their lives for the causes of freedom and peace, must be remembered and honored and I can’t adequately express the appropriate level of my appreciation for you. Please forgive my unintentional thoughtlessness this past Memorial Day. I should have been beside you in person, not just in spirit.

Donald D. Volger

Mayor, Town of Pagosa Springs
