Letter: Overcoming adversity

Aspen and the Roaring Fork Valley have many drivers who transport the rich and the famous.

There is one driver named George Lemon who has gone through much in the past few years, including a misdiagnosed heart condition that resulted in unneeded surgery. He forgave his doctors — no medical-malpractice lawsuit. This year he had two different types of cancer successfully treated.

I wish George a happy Thanksgiving Day. I am thankful he is still around.
