Letter: A woman of character

A woman of character

Aspen sure lost an icon. A most unforgettable woman. I so respected Helen, even in disagreement.

You will be getting many "Helen" stories, all very telling. Here is one that I think speaks to her character: After a particularly contentious council meeting, I received a phone call from her (I hardly knew her at the time) apologizing for her possibly having overreacted as mayor during that meeting.

There you go. I think I will end this right here. I need to go call someone. Good-bye, Helen, and God bless.
