I am a resident of the Heber/ Overgaard area. Two years ago, when the Rodeo/Chediski Fire burned through our neighborhood and we were evacuated for two weeks (the most stressful two weeks of my life, I might add), it was you folks, the good people of Payson who prayed for us, cared for us, fed us and encouraged us. We thank you all for the kindness you showed to us.
As now, once again, we search the media for latest information on the fires that threaten the Rim area. You are in our thoughts a hundred times a day.
We are praying for you as I know your townspeople did for us. So far, so good.
You can count on us to keep up the prayers and the good thoughts. I know that does not ease the anxiety, or relieve your fears, but I hope it helps to let you know we understand what you are going through and we are here for you should the need arise.
Sandi Webb, Heber/Overgaard
