Dear Editor:On behalf of my mother and the rest of our family, I would like to thank those who were by our side during our time of grief.Special thanks goes out to the Aspen Volunteer Fire Dept. Darryl, Bill, Greg, you guys did my pop proud. Yeah, Tim, it was a good “last ride.”Our appreciation also goes out to the Aspen Police Department and the Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office. The men and women of these departments have our heartfelt thanks.To see downtown Aspen shut down for this man was awesome. Those who knew my father remember him often, as he was a good man with the best of hearts. He was always there for those who sought his guidance. You may not like what you heard, but you always walked away with some knowledge.For those who did not know him, drive by the fire barn and honk to show your support and appreciation for the men and women who are there.Our thanks also goes to the Elks lodge for the use of their house, and to Mr. Parker and the limo.Most of all, Mary Weaver, you were the best. We could not have done it without you.Joe Lauriski and familySalida
