A compassionate community

Dear Editor:

We are extremely grateful to the number of people within the extended Aspen community and throughout the Western Slope who patiently and fervently assisted our husband and father, Fred Pearce, in attempting to recover his health over the past several years.

These many individuals and institutions are to be commended for their dedication and compassion. We also appreciate the support from a huge network of family and friends who made it possible for us to honor him with simple dignity and to express our enduring love during the recent celebration of his life on July 1.

Margaret A. Pearce, Bernie D. Pearce, Richard B. Pearce
