I'll never forget the memories we had and created together from going to the rocky Oregon beaches when I was in elementary school, to going salmon and sturgeon fishing in middle school with you. We had a good time when we went sturgeon fishing and I was the only one who caught a fish and we the fish was barely legal to keep. The 45 pound salmon we caught too was good times. I'll also never forget the trip we took with Mom and Grandma to Crater Lake and Mt Hood and the Colombia River Gorge. It was also fun playing chess with you and me trying to do the crossword puzzle with you (albeit not very well). Remember that time when I got there and you me and Izzy the pug went to Burger King drive thru for breakfast and you told me to hold Izzy and I didn't really hold her that well and she climbed from my seat into the driver side to try and climb into the drive thru speaker while barking and growling at the order taking speaker? Also there was a time in your house, with me, Mom and Grandma and we were all cold in the middle of August, so you turned the heat on, and got the blankets out and we were still cold and you offered to put a fire in the fire place. I'll also never forget talking about WWII ships, airplanes and history with you too. Miss You!
With love,
Byron Barrett
