DEAR EDITOR:

Jenny Patterson was my seatmate for the last years I served on Telluride Town Council. Jenny’s vigor, enthralling spirit and unsurpassed love of Telluride dwells with all who help make Telluride a better place. I learned a great deal from her dogged pursuit of truth. I am deeply touched by the beloved compassion she bestowed on my being. Rest in peace, dear friend.
