2. You're right, I do treasure the memories

Nov 2018

There are still others that I know that will (I HOPE!!) be around for a long time. One of them turns 70 on Saturday. He never made it to high office, and yet had a huge (positive) effect on the history of the USA in the last 15 years. I hope there will be others. I hope to get to meet them. Beto is high on my list. I never get to El Paso, but he is no stranger to Dallas.

You've had some marvelous friends... I bet they passed on their strength and longevity to you... hlthe2b Nov 2018 #1
