Dave, I've been thinking about you recently with the passing of your Mom and Dad. Then I noticed in the EO the 50 yr. ago article about the Pendleton baseball league title game with Bend when you hit the winning homerun on the same day as your dad's obituary. I could envision your Dad and Mom sitting in the stands and cheering joyously when your bat connected with the ball. A lot of memories were represented in that edition of the EO. Now more memories with your wife Debbie. I'm so sorry that you have had to deal with so much loss in such a short time. Please accept my deepest condolences.
