Letter: Mourning Durrett

There are big changes occurring in our little town, but the most difficult to reconcile is a Glenwood Springs without Gregory Durrett. Gregory was an active and stabilizing presence in the business, political and social fabric of our community for decades.

He led a simple life but thought about and worked on complex issues — the conditions of the working class, the long-term health of our planet, what makes life meaningful. Underneath his carefully honed curmudgeonly persona was a wise, kind and eloquent man who sought only what was best for all. Vai con Dio, Gregory.
