Our paths crossed twice in my lifetime. First when you were filming "To Climb an Angry Mt) in Mt. Shasta, then again when I moved to Santa Barbara. You were kind, giving, honorable and a pleasure to have met. I worked for you in Santa Barbara and you held our son where you were filming in Weed/Mt. Shasta and we got to take his picture with you! My husband and I had watched you as kids and it was probably a bigger thrill for us than our child.
In Santa Barbara I helped on the hotel project while I was a student at Santa Barbara Community College. I helped you keep the truck loads of dirt an honest count, which mixed well with studying for college tests at the same time! Thanks for that!!
Fess Parker was a delightful man and it was a pleasure and an honor to have met him and enjoyed him as an entertainer most of my life. Rest in peace kind man with honor and dignity. They just don't make them like they use to!!
