They made Sharon’s life better

Dear Editor:Many locals knew Sharon Briggs, who recently died. What many wouldn’t know, however, are the many people who made Sharon’s life better because they served her with great respect and well beyond the call of duty. We would like to mention four people who each gave amazingly of their talent and time – and sacrificed financially or personally – to love Sharon well. They model for us what Jesus said in Matthew 25:40: “I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these of mine, you did for me.” Dr. Craig Angus, a faithful, trustworthy counselor and friend over countless years. Dr. Dan George, giving expensive and difficult dental care. Dr. Bill Rodman, compassionate, personal surgical care and follow-up. And Rodney of Rodney’s Pharmacy, generous and vigilant handling of Sharon’s medicines.We believe, as close friends of Sharon’s, that she would like the community to know of these individuals’ generosity and kindness to her. They represent Aspen at its very best.There are many others whose names are not mentioned for the part they played in Sharon’s life. You know who you are, and we thank you as well. This is why we have called Aspen home and family.Pam Fisher, AspenLourine Clark, New York

Bluebird skies, spring-like temperatures and a few inches of snow from Monday night’s storm helped Snowmass skiers and snowboarders cruise into the season Wednesday for opening day.
