Keystone IA Obituaries and Death Notices

I wrote my boyfriend's obituary. And left myself out. - Washington Post

Monday, May 01, 2017

No. I loved that man since I was 17. He’d been there for me through awful boyfriends, sick parents, a failed marriage; he had been as integral to my growing up as Keystone Light and Kenny Chesney. And I know he would say the same about me. It’s been a year and a half since I left those four words — his girlfriend Susan Shain — out of a public dedication to the man I loved. I now know that it was foolish, because just as he was everything to me, I was more than enough to him. But I also know it doesn’t matter. We didn’t need a piece of paper to prove our love story — and I don’t need one to remember it either.

Authorities ID Texas mom who died in Ski Granby Ranch chairlift fall with daughters - The Denver Post

Monday, January 02, 2017

Vail’s 7-year-old gondola – each carrying six skiers – plummeted 125 feet, killing four people in one of the most deadly lift incidents in the United States. In 1985, a bullwheel at Keystone Resort failed, sending waves down the line that threw 60 people off the Teller Lift, two of whom later died from their injuries.In April 2009, a Rhode Island man with no significant medical history died after losing consciousness on a chairlift in Breckenridge. Attempts to revive him at the top of the lift were unsuccessful.In January, a skier pushed a snowboarder off an Aspen Highlands chairlift. Thomas Proesel, who was accused of first-degree assault in the case, was found not guilty by reason of insanity. The snowboarder was not seriously hurt.This article passed through the Full-Text RSS service - if this is your content and you're reading it on someone else's site, please read the FAQ at fivefilters.org/content-only/faq.php#publishers.Recommended article: The Guardian's Summary of Julian Assange's Interview Went Viral and Was Completely False.
