To The Editor:

Dear Mad River Valley community,

We would like to express our deep gratitude to all our community for your incredible support during the past year of Tom’s illness, his passing on April 5, and helping to make his celebration of life at the Round Barn such a moving event.

As so many have expressed, we are awed by the great people from Central Vermont Home Health and Hospice. 

The staff at Claybrook have been exceptional -- the kind and thoughtful folks at the front desk, maintenance and housekeeping made all the difference.

My MRVAS team was amazing, covering my shifts and lending a hand whenever needed.

Thank you to all our friends here in The Valley for showing so much care during this very difficult time.  

We truly felt held by your many arms and hearts. Tom definitely made the right decision when he built his home here in 1970!

Thank you all.

With love and gratitude,

The family of Tom Barefoot

Joni, Madhurii, Ty, Skye, Griffin and Gus
