Letter: Thanks to the community

I would like to express my gratefulness and thankfulness to the Aspen community that has been by our side for Bert and myself with so much love and support during the past few weeks.

So many people to thank: Dr. Scheuer, Dr. Gallagher, Dr, Rovira, Nancy Dodge, Chris Cohan, the Aspen Valley Hospital and all their staff, Barbara Bush and Home Care & Hospice of the Valley, Dee Dee McCabe, Sonja Oss, Nancy Oakes and all of Bert’s family and friends who were with us the past few weeks for Bert’s peaceful passing.

And especially to Martin Oswald at the Riverside Grill and his awesome staff and Chris Patrick and Bobby Mason for the most beautiful and memorable evening of “talk stories” about Bert. I appreciated this evening in many ways, but especially in helping the community start its healing of Bert’s passing. Remember, the next time you are in Basalt, stop by the Riverside Grill and “split-one” with Bert.

I am sure I’ve forgotten to thank many people — know that you are all in our hearts.

Love and Peace,

Love and Peace,

Mrs. Bert Petersen (Lorna)
