This year, too

Dear Editor:Last week for three magical evenings Roaring Fork Hospice celebrated the 16th year of Loving Tree, an event created for and supported by the communities hospice serves. The idea behind the event is to provide survivors an opportunity to remember loved ones through hanging a special ornament on a tree of lights.This year, as every year, there were many familiar faces, and this year, as there is every year, there were also new ones. There were tears and laughter, hugs and handshakes. The trees were beautiful and the words shared by speakers hopefully gave comfort to everyone in attendance.Roaring Fork Hospice is grateful not only to the many people behind the scenes that make this event happen but also to all of you who came forward, bought an ornament and made the journey to the tree. We thank you, we applaud you and we wish you peaceful and joyful holidays.Sean JeungRoaring Fork Hospice
