Hundreds turn out to honor 3 men lost in western Colorado mudslide

Hundreds of people are honoring the lives of the three men lost in a massive mudslide last week in western Colorado.

The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1gVYqL1 ) says people from the Collbran area packed the Plateau Valley School gymnasium Sunday evening to remember 51-year-old Clarence Allen "Clancy" Nichols, 46-year-old Melvin Wesley Hawkins, and 24-year-old Daniel Allen Nichols.

Authorities say they were swept away in a mudslide a half-mile wide and three miles long May 25, about 11 miles south of Collbran.

They had been checking on irrigation problems caused by an initial slide when a large chunk of a ridge broke off, sending soggy earth spilling like wet cement. Their bodies have not been found.

The paper says it was a solemn ceremony for the estimated 200 family members and about 800 friends.
