I don't have a single memory of my teenage years without "Jake" and RubyLee in it. I so loved these two wonderful people, they helped so many children who society turned their back on. I love you "Jake" and may you now be with RubyLee in heaven.

Dear Cliff, sorry to read of your dad's passing. Seems like it was only yesterday that your family still lived on S.W. 21st, and we were kids. I hope all is well with you and your family, last time we saw each other, you gave me my army fatigues as I was passing through McChord on my way to Nam., thinking of you, Jerry Bushnell.
