Friends for over a decade. We each went our own ways from time to time, but again found each other and shared our lives once again: Cheering at Weber State basketball games, quiet times at your place, scrubbing barnacles off your boat at Coronado, California and tipping a few at The Horse --- always an adventure. You always made me laugh no matter what. You will always be in my memories and my heart --- Robin

One Dearest, Sweetest Persons and a friend for over fifty years You will be missed but never forgotten. You were my first friend when I came to Ogden so many years ago and such a wonderful friend you were! You were always a joy to be with and always had the cutest smile. I will miss seeing you and will never forget what we shared with each other through out the years. My heart goes out to your family. Sleep well My Friend! Yvonne

My Very best friend I have had in my life has now passed away of that deadly decease the Big C. I know his body is now at peace, and he has been able to live and accomplish many many things in his life. I am only sorry I lost so many days being with him. But his telephone conversations always were full of humor and good advise. His memory will always be with me, and above all, I know I had the best friend anyone could ask for.
