Letter: Thank you for your support

We wish to thank all those wonderfully kind people of Snowmass Village and Aspen who responded with cards, emails, phone calls, letters and photographs to the news of my son’s death on July 5 in Corvallis, Oregon. It was truly overwhelming and comforting to know that Franz was so loved and admired by those who knew him and with whom he skied, hiked and hunted.

Thank you all sincerely. Your support and thoughtfulness have meant so much to us and have helped to ease our sadness. We miss him terribly.

We do want you to know that his friends will be getting together Oct. 8 at 3 p.m. at the Aspen Valley Ski and Snowboard Club to reminisce about the time he lived in Snowmass and skied Aspen Mountain. All are welcome. It will be a time of sharing with photos and stories, so please join this celebration of Franz’s life.

Please contact Jill Burchmore for more information at jillburchmore@gmail.com.
