With the tragic accident that claimed the life of Cason Terjeson last Saturday, we lost one of our best. Being a neighbor to the Terjeson family is to be blest by knowing the most caring, generous, compassionate, thoughtful people in our community.

While I know his grandfather, Jim, more closely, I haven't meet a Terjeson that I didn't like and admire.

It was said correctly in your editorial (A harvest of sadness in Juniper Canyon, July 17) life is intended to be a series of steps that follow each other, which makes losing a child so difficult to understand.

Time will pass and some of the pain will lessen with it, but for some of us the loss of this young man and a Juniper Canyon Terjeson will last forever. Cason, our thoughts are with you. And to the rest of the clan, we support you.
