It was a pleasure taking a road trip to the Dalles in July, 2011 to learn your history, to walk the streets you walked and visit your resting place. You did not deserve to be senselessly and selfishly murdered. You were an honorable man ans your family is proud to be your descendants. Rest in peace, others will take watch from here.
