The flu has claimed its first life in Mesa County since the health department began taking records in 2003.

A four-year-old died on January 30th, and according to the Mesa County Health Department he tested positive for type “B” flu. This is the first death in Colorado for the 2007-2008 flu season.

Today a memorial service was held for the young boy at Canyon View Vineyard Church Chapel. Those who knew and loved him say he had a natural athletic ability and loved sweets.
