It was 1978 and I was 10, western shows were always and still are my fav.I love Mr. breck,I loved the character of Nick in the Big Valley,still today I watch.Loved the tuff and kind Nick Barkley,he was the best!!! Iam 45 today,a mom to two young kids married for 18...but Peter Breck will always have a special place in my heart.I did read his bio,and his wife letter to the fans....I like that man now even more.May God bless his soul and his son's as well and keep a watchfull eye on his darling wife,Amen. P.s. I growup in Italian riviera and is there I start watching The Big Valley, I even wrote to the tv station for pics, I got some big and nice ones of the whole cast and himself alone,I still have them.I live in south Cali now for 25 years....God bless you all. ????
