To the editor:
Starr Aldrich ~ I recall the first time I met/talked to Starr ... It was at the 4th of July in 2013. I went over to thank him for bringing Sparky and Engine #10, because they are both so integral to the Niwot community events. And I thanked him for the enjoyment I just had observing Sparky talking to a lady. The lady was looking everywhere for the Sparky handler, who acknowledged that her red dress matched his fire engine. The lady looked at the roof of the Niwot Market thinking someone might be up there so they could observe that she had on a red dress. So fun. Recently I was fortunate to attend a MVFPD community workshop and had the opportunity to visit with Starr. He was a fine gentleman with a big heart for people and service.
