THORNTON, Colo. -- The father of Randy Stollsteimer broke his silence today to thank the community for all its help and support.
"We want to thank all of the wonderful people for their prayers and thoughts and contributions," Chris Stollsteimer said. Randy Stollsteimer and his entire family died February 17 when their pick-up truck was crushed by a speeding SUV in Thornton.
He was surrounded by family members as he spoke Saturday afternoon in Lakewood.
"It's just so wonderful to know so many people came through to help us in this tragedy," he added.
Chris Stollsteimer says he has not been able to watch TV or read any news about the accident. He also apologized to people who came to the funeral for his son's family and had to be turned away because of the large crowd.
