    I so remember Bills smile it was always the biggest and best smile. You just saw that smile and your day got immediately better. I remember my family and Bills family we always went camping various places in the Rockies and had such fun. I will remember Bill with great fondness and warmth.

    I meant Bill or Buddy as we call him through my husband, Dennis Carter. Buddy was his cousin. Buddy was always ready for fun and laughter. He was spry and loved to be outdoors. One of my favorite memories is Buddy going with us to the family cabin in Phantom Canyon. The cabin was on BLM and at one time the family held a mining claim but they lost it. We hiked up to it, saw the remains of the cabin, the spring, and had a picnic. Buddy was in early 80’s …spry and fit…He was an amazing man. We had many talks on education and his family. Buddy was proud of them. and always willing to visit and share his memories, stories, and love. He will be missed.
