Bittersweet sentence

Dear Editor:

This has been and is quite difficult to write as it is in regard to a former student I adore. I’m sure this young man is thrilled he did not receive jail time in the March heroin death of a visitor to Aspen.

I am not quite sure what kind of message this sends to others.
