Our home teacher became our friend. Every visit, Jared was happy to see us. Don Boylan and Jared Dickson would talk about good old days whenever they got together. Rebecca and Jared had a mutual passion for rock hounding and creating jewelry with rocks and minerals, to share with our favorite people. We will miss you dearly, our friend.
