The Del and Margaret Oveson family have been a pillar of the Sawtooth Valley community. Del's sudden passing at age 45 left Margaret, Kylee (13), and Logan (10). All of those of us who value this area will appreciate the opportunity to help support Margaret, Kylee, and Logan in their desire to stay in the Sawtooth Valley and remain a valued working part of our community in the years to come. Assistance would be most appreciate in supporting educational opportunities for Kylee and Logan.  Logan recently remarked to Jim Bishop that "Dad told us if we wanted to go to college, we were on our own.” Let's come together as a community and make that less true than it currently is for these wonderful kids.

John Miller has set up a college fund for Kylee and for Logan -- see below.  For anyone looking to provide support to this family who we all appreciate and care deeply for, please consider donating to this fund.
