Extraordinary men, extraordinary tributes

Dear Editor:On behalf of the Aspen Volunteer Fire Department I would like to thank our community for their support and cooperation during our recent memorial proceedings for Willard Clapper Sr. and Stan Lauriski. In particular, the Aspen Police Department, Pitkin County Sheriff, Aspen Street Department and Smiddy Limousine were outstanding with their effort to ensure safe and organized events with minimal disruption for our citizens. They were fitting tributes for such extraordinary men that would not have been possible without you, thank you all again.Darryl GrobAspen Fire Chief
