Remembering Patrick Mahany (letter)

I would like to say a few words about the recent accidental death of Flight for Life pilot, Patrick Mahany. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Mahany several times on our hikes on the Wildernest trails in Siverthorne. It was never less than 30 minutes of interesting, lively chat, while our dogs played close by. It broke my heart to hear of this tragedy. Whenever I saw the helicopter flying over, I would always think of him fondly and it would remind that I missed our casual encounters on the trails, since we moved to Breck. I will never forget a quote he shared with me about his job. He told me that he would say to the accident victims that he was rescuing, “We’re the best thing that you will ever see, on the worst day of your life.” Jeff Baldwin’s recent quote about his friend is right on. He will be missed by many…
