I loved Suzanne...she had a beautiful soul. She was a friend of mine throughout the years. I miss her...perhaps we'll see each other again

Re: “Obituary: Louis Chiriatti, 1940-2019

I got to know Lou through the Silver Spokes bike club. Lou was very active helping to plan and lead rides. I also sailed with him when he moved his boat from Mallets Bay to Shelburne Yacht Club. Always a lot of fun. We also had a lot of fun skiing at Smuggs. The highlight of the biking season was the cookout and Silver Spokes get together at Kingsland Bay State Park which was organized by Randee and Lou. He will be greatly missed.

Re: “Obituary: Sanders Milens, 1938-2019

SAndy Oh My. I remember years ago, talking with you outside lightworks when they were on Pine St. You had a car full of equipment. We were talking about how strobe lights got too hot and what to do about it. You opened up the back of your station wagon, the rear end sloping a bit downward due to weight of equipment and showed me your strobe lights. You had taken your drill to the back end of the lights and put 12 or more holes in each one, so they would cool down. Then later on when we both had studios at the Chase Mill, I was amazed once more with your ingenuity. You had made a soft box almost as big as your studio...the size of a small bedroom. You were a sturdy influence on my work, and wonderful friend. The world will be strange without you and your humor. RIP Sandy. Bet you will hang out with Fred Hill, too, and fix more strobe lights. Ciao And my best to Muffie.

Re: “Obituary: Louis Chiriatti, 1940-2019

Beautiful obituary. Id like to add that he was a great Uncle too. A great role model and someone to look up to. I looked so farward to Christmas every year, when id get to see him and my cousins, and we'd all go to the movies as a family. I think Uncle Lou was the ring leader of that tradition. All of my memories of him are happy ones and i wish i had gotten to spend more time with him throughout my life. Love you Uncle Lou. Kiss Gram and Pop for me.

Re: “Obituary: Enid Wonnacott, 1961-2019

What a spectacular human being who enriched everyone in her orbit while accomplishing so much.
A one-woman constellation.

We plan to plant an apple tree this spring and will dedicate that to Enid, of course!

Re: “Obituary: Elizabeth Hampel, 1927-2018

I was so privileged to know Betty. In her final months she was still giving art lessons, encouraging those around her to trust their creative self, and effusively loving the dogs that visited the residence. She had a spark of genius, for sure. And a beautiful soul.

Re: “Obituary: Madelyn Linsenmeir, 1988-2018

Im so extremely sorry for your loss i DO understand losing a child. Lost my first son as an infant in 87, i lost a second son to suicide in 2012 he was 19 yrs old n now im losing my 33 yr old son to a heroin addiction. I fear he wont survive this.. I know the heart wrenching agony of knowing that you child is dying slowly to the demom of addiction. Every knock at the door every time my cell rings its instant fear that ive lost another son. Until he choices to try recovery he will ne at a constant risk of immediate death
My heart goes out to u and your family as well as heartfelt prayers for ypur own healing
The pain of the death of a child to any manner never goes away but we do get better at dealing with it with new coping skills
I dont think i can possibly survive burying another of my sons. I really dont. Be well be strong be happy you will oneday be able to think of her without feeling like ypir heart os neimg ripped grom your chest this i can promise

Re: “Obituary: Scott Skinner, 1942-2018

What a shock!! Scott and I were childhood playmates in Troy, PA living on the same street. I always enjoyed going to his childhood home and his family were such fun to be around. Scott and Mary have been going to Wellfleet (Cape Cod) for many summers. When they were there Scott and I would get together for lunch to catch up and reminisce. He would periodically email me to see if I was alright showing great concern for my health and that I was working too much. His care, concern, and compassion will so greatly missed. As well as my annual Christmas card, which he was able to get out this year.

My life is better because Matt was a part of it. We shared many laughs. I truly hope we get to hang out again in the great, mysterious 'beyond'.

Re: “Obituary: Matthew Grant Thorsen, 1967-2019

Vermont, or Burlington at the least, should have a Matt Thorsen Day... A day when we all remember him by being kind to an animal, volunteer at a charity of our own choice, all while wearing something snazzy.

Re: “Obituary: Matthew Grant Thorsen, 1967-2019

Matt was a gentle force of nature, with his sense of wonder and artistic aura along with his endearing charisma, you were happy to ride in his comet for while. Whether taking in a show of his work, visiting the Church & Maple compound, etc.
I thank the universe for giving us a while with him, although it was not long enough, and that he was able to be a special part of so many peoples lives in such a positive and impactful ways. My condolences to his family.

Nancy was a wonderful and warm woman with a generous heart. Part of the heart and soul of St. Albans. We will miss you. My condolences to all that knew this gentle soul.

Re: “Obituary: Scott Skinner, 1942-2018

Scott was a dear friend, mentor, and ultimately my colleague at the ACLU. He taught me how to write clearly when I was 20 years old and was an inspiration to many of us who worked on his 1976 campaign. We had the same jobs over the years and he was so much better at them. Scott was a superb advocate for justice and had a keen sense of humor. His death was a shock. His life was well lived.

Re: “Obituary: Irene Cornell Linde, 1922-2018

Mrs. Irene Linde lived an extraordinary, only-in-Vermont life, and her legacy goes far beyond the accomplishments in her obituary. Allow me the moment to tell you of one indelible memory:

It's the dead winter in Vermont, snow piled thick, air so cold it snaps your nostrils shut. I am in fourth grade. My sister Madeleine is in sixth, my brother Charley is in third, Tony in second. We are walking the one-mile hike home, up Pleasant Valley Road from the little Underhill Elementary School.

We're bundled up just fine - jackets, wool hats, mittens, snow pants, boots, scarves - but it's still so very cold, and we can't trudge very fast because of all the layers of clothing. Mom is home with our baby sister Angeline, so we don't bother her to get us. We're literally walking that proverbial mile-to-school-in-the-snow claim that cranky old folks like to make.

A car pulls up alongside us and stops. The snow-white head of Mrs. Linde pokes out the window. Here's her proposition to the four of us:

"Why don't I drive all of you to my house, fix you hot chocolate, let you warm up and then I'll drive you all home."

I don't need to elaborate on our immense feelings of gratitude, the feeling and taste of the hot cocoa, the rush of heat back to our small, fingertips, noses and feet. You can interpret that on your own.

I will, however, elaborate on this obituary by observing that the good life of a fine person can still warm the heart of this man, some 50 years later, some thousands of miles away. Which is no small feat.

With great affection,
Peter Albert
San Francisco, CA

Re: “Obituary: Nancy Hudak, 1955-2018

Nancy had a quick and passionate intelligence that would stop me in my tracks and I always felt valued in her presence. The wisdom she shared on being an empowered and giving person was authentic and her vibrant spirit will remain always in the community.

Re: “Obituary: Nancy Hudak, 1955-2018

Nancy was one of the most kindest and loyal friend anyone could ask for!! She was one of the best! I always looked looked forward to seeing and talking with her anytime i went into the store. It's so heartbreaking she will be so missed by everyone that was lucky enough to have known this beautiful soul. Thank you Nancy for all the support you have given me over the years . Rest in peace my dear friend!!
