Grandad Lemoyne-Thank you for your sacrifice while performing your sworn duty as a peace officer. Just knowing that my kids and I (Anthony and Greg) and now my grandsons (Trevor and Ryan) love to hike the same Sierra sagebrush that you wandered as a young man while raising my Mother (Merle) fills my heart with great pride and love. In your writings and poetry I can recognize Round Valley, Division Creek and Mt. Tom as well as Lake Sebrina and Rock Creek as places we share with a common bond. My only regret is that I never had the priviledge of meeting you and enjoying the humor and sense of adventure that has been passed on to us by your little girl, Merle.

Darryl M Taylor
Grandson to you & son of your daughter, Merle
