How Do We Say Goodbye?

Written by President and CEO of Kentwood Real Estate, Gretchen Rosenberg

So many residents of the Boulder, Colorado community were impacted by this week’s tragic events. At Kentwood Real Estate, we’re reflecting on and grieving the lives lost.

It quite literally takes my breath away to see the number of young people who were victims. Knowing those parents and families will be traumatized forever. Every one of the victims leaves behind loved ones and friends who weren’t prepared to say goodbye without actually having an opportunity to say goodbye.

The Boulder police officer who rushed in to provide aid was beyond any simple definition of bravery or heroism. He leaves behind a wife and 7 children. 

This week we mourn. That’s what communities do together. Some days are for celebrations. Others are for saying goodbyes.
