Insensitivity |


Dear Editor:

In response to your article of Friday June 17 on dealing with drugs in Aspen, you once again referred to my late husband and family. I understand the devastation and tragedy of drug use in the valley as I lost my husband, and not one but all three of my children lost their father to drug use. I am currently rebuilding our family and would appreciate being left out of the publicity on your campaign against drugs.

I will personally help your cause in any way I can, however, again I ask that my children be allowed to go forward in peace. In addition, I can hardly believe you would sensationalize our family once again two days before Father’s Day.
