Mom…We lost a good fishing partner. Perhaps GOD has only keepers in heaven and none that got away..As we get older, I am thankful that only the good memories are the ones that stay with us.. and many good memories come to the forefront when I think of all the time and patience that both of you nurtured us with during the trips ‘up the river’..We will stop by the house again when we visit Pueblo..love from our family…we will offer our masses for Seth……….rick and linda
