Like so many kids we grew up with Rex and Boomtown. We loved the show and I think our parents liked their time to sleep in will we were enthralled with Rex and company Saturday and Sunday mornings. We dreamed of one of those trips, but it was never in our means, yet there was alwawys the hope of someday.
My H.S. class added Rex to our yearbook and when I heard where he was making a personal appearance I took my book to have Rex autograph it. Treasured all the more now.
In showing respect for others, including his animals, he earned so much more respect and love from others. Although his light has gone out we all will keep the flame he passed us in our hearts.
