Touching response

Aspen Times writer

Dear Editor:

I am extremely touched by all the letters and articles written about my brother, Nick Alcorta. A sincere thank you to all who helped comfort my family during this difficult time.

A special thanks goes out to Diane and Leslie for putting together a beautiful program and luncheon with “Nick’s Mix.”

To Celeste and Scott, who were very personable while making arrangements for Nick’s services. Deb still wants to buy you a beer.

To every person involved during Nick’s memorial service, who expressed lots of kind thoughts and expressions about him.

Close to my heart are the Gaddises, Jensens, those crazy Californians and Uncle Lionel. Despite the circumstances, we found solace by exchanging great stories about Nick.

Nick made a commitment to Basalt based on mutual respect. This community pulled together to honor Nick and he would be so proud. I am grateful that Debbie and the boys have so many people in their lives that truly care about them.
