Despite everything that we have encountered in 2020, we are thankful to each of you for your continued support. We hope that everyone was able to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday, whether it was a traditional celebration, or a 2020 rendition. Read along below to see what some of our staff are thankful for this year.
“I’m thankful that in a time when so many are unemployed and/or sick, I still have a job and my family is healthy.” – David R.
“Family! The ability to work from home and keep our family safe & healthy, and our wonderful staff for remaining patient, dedicated, and exemplifying professionalism during this difficult time.” – Phillip L.
“Having a mom who raised, nurtured, taught, and support me to be the person I am today.” – Min A.
“My admiration and appreciation for those that make up this Ricca family has grown deeper with another year passing us. Regardless of the circumstances which affected so many this year, our lives have been braced by sources of hope and togetherness from the will of this tremendous group. We are blessed to have each other, in a world that has shifted economic tides and our perspectives, showcasing just how important having a "family" is during times of tribulation. I am thankful for you all and may everyone have a tremendously present experience in this year's holiday. Appreciate the time we have with the ones we love and let us revel in the chance to continue loving and living each and every day.” – Konner S.
“I am thankful to God who has directed my paths to where I am today, even with some sharp turns throughout my life thus far. Without this direction, I may not have been here in Colorado for these past years, and would not have had Don in my life, nor my stepson and adoring granddaughters. Yes, so very thankful this Thanksgiving, even with such a difficult year.” – Lori K.
“I am thankful for the Ricca Family that has allowed me to continue working, and offering great support during these trying times.” – Amanda P.
