    SOOOOO wish we could again be in Elko...has been years (too many). Since moving to NW Montana (never land) seems we left much which we loved (desert, jobs, friends, opportunities to attend Western Legends and Cowboy Poetry). And several friends have gone to Heaven since we moved!! Then there was Brigeport Ranch in 2008! RW single-handedly "did" cowboy church, after performing Saturday evening. Best service I have ever attended...this man is so very special/unique!!! Took my dear 94 year old cousin to Kanab where he got to meet RW who was such a sweet gentleman to Ed!! Then to Maverick's Coffee House in Visalia CA. Ed had his movie camera rolling!! Blessings RW to you and Family. If I don't see you here again...we'll meet up in Heaven one day! Phil. 1:3-6
