  1. I am heartsick for your family’s deep loss… I was flooded with some wonderfully funny and great memories of the times I spent with you and George, the boys and, I think, MOST of
    Ute Pass at the softball games, camping at Longwater, BBQ’s, Siver Tongue Devil, Crystola, your place…..Those memories made me smile and laugh to remember how much fun we ALL had together❤️
