A song for Jim Snobble
Dear Editor:I got to know Jim Snobble through my relationship with his former step-daughter and Aspenite Tracey Tooker. We shared a love of the North, and especially the vast roadless areas of Canada. Like everyone who was privileged to know Jim, I mourn his passing. But I am comforted by the following lines from a song by Western singer Red Steagall which easily could have been written with Jim in mind:”My church is the great out-of-doors,My song is nature’s sound,The sky is my cathedral,My alter is the ground.You must be fond of mavericks’Cause you made them wild and free,I know you’ve got a place up there,For old cowboys like me.”Richard WienNew York, N.Y.
