October 21, 2009 --
We found his memorial card as we walked along the shore line at Lake Yellowstone in Wyoming back in mid- September. We held Robert's memory in our thoughts in the intervening month since we discovered the card. The day we found it was a beautiful early fall day. The sky was filled with puffy clouds and the breeze was light. We took the card, planning to find a place as beautiful as where we found it so we could leave it for someone else to carry to another beautiful location. We are in our late 60's and do not get around as much as we used to do. However, yesterday we ventured into the mountains west of Colorado Springs. We entered the Pikes Peak Heritage Center which looks down upon the little town of Cripple Creek and which also has a commanding view of the Sangre de Christo Mountains, which are spectacular from this overlook. This time of year they have the first dusting of snow on their summits and the view is breathtaking. May God bless you in your time of grief and may He also look after Robert and his comrades forever.
