Forever grateful

This letter is to express my gratitude to the HopeWest Hospice staff that lovingly cared for my brother, Michael McCullough, and became part of the McCullough family during the last five months of his wonderful life.  Michael’s family has set up a memory gift location in his name. Donations can be made on line at, by mail or in person at 725 S. 4th St., Montrose, CO 81401 (970-240-7734). Michael’s name will be engraved in a gold aspen leaf and displayed on the fence in front of the HopeWest office in Montrose.
Special thanks to “Captain” Jim Courson and “Private” Felicia Evans for their incredible care and blessings, and also to Amy, Julie, Kim, Vicki and the 24 Hour HopeWest staff. Without them, my sister, Stephanie, my daughter, Jennifer, Grace and I could not have facilitated Michael’s wish of spending his last days living at the place he loved the most, the historic Fire DepARTment on Lena Street in Ridgway.
I also want to thank the Town of Ridgway for committing to preserve Michael’s legacy. He was an amazing artist who touched many lives, including numerous individuals whose artistic abilities were emanated and enhanced through his teaching and inspiration. The McCullough family misses him very much. Thank you, His Forever Grateful Sister and Friend,
