Heartfelt thanks from deFrees family
To the Editor:
To the townspeople of Rumford and Mexico:
We would like to send heartfelt thanks to all the wonderful people who attended the Celebration of Life on September 17 for our father, Burt deFrees, visited us at Grove Farm later that day, and sent cards and emails.
So many of you have extended your kind friendship to our family and our parents throughout their and our life. So many of you supported and helped our father when he was on his own after our mother Jane died in 2004. And so many of you have reached out to comfort us this fall.
We wish we could have spoken to all of you one by one on the 17th but we know we missed many of you. We hope you will feel fully thanked by reading this letter. In the coming months and years, we look forward to seeing you all around town.
Evie, Beth and Ethan deFrees
