Several months ago SLK and I traveled to California for the funeral of our dear friend Richard P. We became friends with Richard, Linda and girls back in the 80's in Oregon where we attended church together. We were living in a very beautiful, rural area, raising young families . . . and Rex rabbits, gardening, and very active service in our ward/congregation. We all ended up moving and doing other things. Richard and SLK at one time were working for the same company and kept close. Friendship is a wonderful thing!!!
Richard was such an upbeat, happy, smiling, teasing, real-life cowboy who married a talented, gifted, beautiful, hardworking real-life cowgirl although she looked like a model.
