Congratulations to John Codington Moses and Allison Michelle Rosenfeld of Loz Feliz, California, who were married on June 10 by Zoom. Yearning to get married, they carried out their vows in spite of the pandemic. John grew up in Charlotte and is the son of Peter and Meredith Moses.

Sympathy is extended to family and friends of Peter Bergh of Edwards, Colorado, formerly of Charlotte. Peter died June 3 at the age of 82. He was born in New York and lived in Charlotte for many years where he served as a member of the Planning Commission, the CCS School Board and the Selectboard. He was also an original founder of the Charlotte Land Trust, and he served on the board of the Baird Center for Children and Families. An author, he wrote a book on the work of artist Ogden Pleisener, whose work he admired enough to become friends with him. The family asks that those wishing to remember him do so by making donations to the Charlotte Land Trust, the Western Colorado Community Foundation or to the Climate Accountability Institute.

Sympathy is extended to family and friends of Edward B. Crane, M.D. of Frisco, Colorado, who died May 15 at the age of 96. Following his World War II military duty and medical school at UVM, he established a private practice in his home in Charlotte. He gained permission to continue his practice instead of joining the Korean War effort since he was the only doctor in town. He later spent a year in the Army in the mid 1950s and 19 more years in Charlotte before retiring in 1975 and moving to Colorado. His surviving family includes his daughter Ellen Lane and her husband, Jeffrey, of Charlotte.
