    Thank you, it takes a village

    Zella Ceniceros

    As our family was hit with the unthinkable on Oct. 30, our loving family, friends, and community who have offered love and support and so much more immediately surrounded us.

    There will never be words adequate enough to thank everyone who has stepped up in our time of sorrow and need. We will never be able to repay the kind deeds shown to our family during this tragedy. The generosity of this community has made this burden easier to bear.

    All we can say is simply, thank you.

    We would like to make an extra special note of thanks to the Grand County Sheriff’s Office, Grand County EMS, and Moab City Police Department for their immediate response and tireless efforts to try and save our precious daughter. Also Mearl with Spanish Valley Mortuary, your kindness and grace have been a gift. The GCSO, GCEMS, MCPD, and Mearl have been in our prayers as we know that was a very difficult night for you as well.

    It takes a village. Our village here is something very special.

    Thank you.

    — Matt, Lisa, and Ayden Ceniceros
