It was a pleasure having you on KDUR all these years. I'll miss the shows we did together during membership drives, and the musical conversations we had. I regret not taking you up on your offer to walk the grounds of the James Ranch with you. I'll miss you TMAC.

Dad - sure hope you're having fun where ever you are! Say 'hi' to mom for me. Luv you! Karen M
