77: Cary, I have truly enjoyed working with you for the past five years. I have learned so much from you and you were so patient in teaching me. I have enjoyed sitting across from you and getting to know you. You are a great person and I really do look up to you. Thanks for being my friend. Good luck in your retirement and I hope you have fun in all you do. Kathy Donais | The things I remember most about Cary are her dedication and her warm smile. Among the many memories I have about Cary are the couple of times that I received complaints from angry property owners, who wanted to shift their own rudeness and anger onto Cary. Of all the people to be indicted for rudeness, Cary would be the last on the list. She always bent over backward to be nice and helpful. I remember one incident, when Cary called to remind a man that he would be hit with a penalty if he did not get his payment in within the next few days. It is not required that Cary do that but she did it as a courtesy to the tax payers to help them avoid an additional penalty. I can't remember if it was a voice mail, or an actual letter, but this man railed on about how Cary had threatened him and acted bellicose and in a most unprofessional manner. Knowing Cary's professionalism and courteous manner, I could only laugh at the incident and write a letter defending her and explaining why how she had gone beyond the call of duty in trying to help him. Cary Liston is one of the nicest, most responsible and helpful people I know, and I wish her well her new journey. Jim Ivie
78: Dear Cary, I can’t tell you how much I’m going to miss you and how much your staying has meant to me. It has been wonderful to be able to ask you any question and get a reasoned answer, backed by years of experience. Just invaluable. It’s like I’ve told you – I really wish you were about 20 years younger! I also wanted to tell you how much I appreciate you writing the procedures manuals for personal property appeals and also the supervisor position description. It has been fun getting to know you, even for this short period of time. I want to wish you and your husband the best retirement ever. Enjoy it, you’ve earned it! Dennis Yarrington | Cary, I have been asked to write some of my thoughts about you and our work together. My main thought about you is how gracious you were to me in teaching me about the many parts of my job. You were always willing to go over and over and over anything I had a question about. You said we all makes mistakes and the best part is we have the ability to admit it and correct them. To me, you are one of the most dedicated employees I have met. I remember a good laugh we had together. I was sitting in the back room on break and you came in to get a yogurt. You opened the yogurt and it sprayed all over me. You said it was one of your most embarrassing moments. I told you, it was alright... as I clean up well. Cary good luck as you go forwad into a retirement with your good husband and children around you. I’m sure when you start you will wonder how you had ever had the time to work. Thanks so much for these last six good years. Robin Campbell.
79: Cary, Where have the years gone? Time goes by so fast. Tomorrow it will be my turn. And just think there will be no need for “yes you can go early” or “have a day or two off” “if you have the time” anymore. You'll be missed. Also all the knowledge that will be walking out the door. It was nice to be able to just turn around and ask a question and knew that you would always be glad to help. Make sure you enjoy those retirement years. Have fun and be happy. Oh, enjoy the “land down under” I'm sure my wife and I could fit in a suitcase. Again, Enjoy! Ken Duvall | Cary, Thank you for the opportunity everyday of learning and growing. I am grateful for all your patience and laughter. I truly hope this next chapter of your life is full of adventure and joy. You are a wonderful person; and I hope you all the best in life. Stop in once in a while just to “pull my leg” I'll miss your humor. Charity Macfarlane
80: Cary, It is so hard to believe it will be 10 years this October since I started working with you. I’ll always be grateful for the opportunity you and Carol gave me. It was probably the hardest thing I’ve ever done, to start a totally different field. I’m not sure my brain ever wrapped around the job. I enjoyed hearing your stories in the morning. They always made me feel like my life was dull with no adventure. I’m glad you will be able to be home enjoying retirement with Paul. Hopefully there will be some trips planned to see the family. Thank you for sharing your wonderful talent of baking. I’ll miss your layered dessert, Ranger Cookies, and Rice Crispy Squares. Take care and enjoy this new phase of your life. Louise Miller | Cary, I really enjoyed getting to know you over the past years. You will be greatly missed both as a co-worker and as my friend. I hope that you enjoy your retirement and get to travel and spend a lot of time with your family. Take care of yourself and if you get a chance keep in touch. Gina Holder
81: Hey Cary, Been great talking to you over the years. I hope all goes well with your retirement. I’ve got 12 years before I retire. Good luck and have some fun! Take care. Lauri Gallegos | Cary, It has been a pleasure to work with you these many years. We’ve had quite a few good laughs and I hope you continue to keep a light heart with you always. Take some time to explore and travel. There’s a bright world out beyond the Assessor’s Office. Best Wishes! James Teton
82: Dear Cary, Welcome to the ranks of the retirees. I know that once you get use to it you will really love it. I'm glad I had the opportunity of getting to know you and working with you. It's been almost ten years since I retired. Where does the time go? I still remember the muffins you would bring to work. I loved them and I never make them myself; because it's makes to many for just the two of us. Good luck in all that you do and ENJOY retirement!! Love, Barbara Beck
