Not sure what to say?

When John moved from Lander, Wyoming to Scottsbluff, he and I became friends. We both liked horses and were crazy about rodeos. John was a good cowboy, a good partner, a lot of fun, and a good friend. I will miss John and will always remember those times I had with him. I will especially be thinking of Doris, Joe, and the girls tomorrow. John and Lou will be on all of our minds. Ozzie Walters, Seward, Alaska

The funeral is on Saturday, July 27; not Friday. I guess that is what happens when grieving families are handling the details. We make errors. John, I envision you riding a good horse with Dad through Heavenly mountains, breathing easy with strength and agility in your limbs once again. Love your sister, Valerie
