Make ‘Drew’ decisions

I read “Top Local Stories of 2004” detailing the tragic accident that claimed Drew Reynolds’ life and telling of the efforts of his family left behind, and decided to write. As a flatlander who only recently “met” Drew, my sister, Kerri Fulton, is the recipient of the scholarship in his name coordinated by Lore Reynolds and the Rotary Club.

Only knowing of the Reynoldses through Kerri, I think of them often. I wanted to thank Lore for keeping the memory of her amazing husband alive. His passing has united the foothills community and created opportunities for Drew to live in the hearts of many his memory has helped posthumously. I grieve for Lore, hold my family closer, and most of all, hope that my life is an example to others as this courageous couple’s clearly is. She truly embodies her husband’s spirit. I pray that her husband can see what she is doing in his memory, and know what a bright example she is in her childrens’ lives. Her comment about forgiveness is just the icing on the cake. I wish you well, Lore, vow to make more “Drew decisions” and wish there were more out there like you.
