Writer misses group of people who got things done in the Valley

   Years ago, when I was a news reporter in the Snoqualmie Valley, there was always a group of folks who were busy getting things done: making historical recordings and paying attention to the quality of life in our valley.

   I am heart-hurt at the loss of many of those folks, and in particular, Mr. Kosters and Ruth Subert. I want to say, "You are so loved and missed."

   I know there are others who I should mention, but the list is too long. I just want to say that all your work and love for the Valley is so appreciated. You have left a legacy. Folks who have moved to the Valley are enjoying the feeling of community more than they ever could have if you all hadn't been here for us.

   Thank you, with love.
