Many memories, but one of the fondest was when my sister (Vel) and I (Sherry) came to Amarillo for a visit. David and Curt (David's brother) were about 14 and 16 (approximately). Anyway, they both had paper routes, and they spent their hard earned money on hand tooled purses for me and my sister. I thought they were the greatest Uncles ever, and I was right, they were! Always in my heart.
