  2. I knew your parents so well for many years in Santa Fe as my mother and I would go to prayer meetings on Gonzales road. I was in high school but spent 6-8 years at meetings. I am reading a book about Seattle where I grew up now and just googled Myles and found you. Please be in touch.
    God bless

    • Hi Becky,

      Oh, so nice to hear from you. I was in Santa Fe a year ago and went by the house. My parents remain so close to my heart,and it thrills me that you remember them, and were part of their ministry. I live in Oakland and have for many years. My parents came out here in their last years, so we had much time to reunite and be together. I know the Santa Fe years were defining for them, a wonderful outreach. I hope you are doing well, and thanks so much for writing.


  3. Men of the West, page 16, I thought Dawson was in the Yukon? The Dawson I visited was definitely in the Yukon. Is there one in Alaska as well? Good book, interesting reading, great photos.

  4. Cathy,
    Congratulations on three boys, lots of books and an interesting life. I would like to buy an autographed copy of “Skidboots”. Let me know. Hasta la vista. Patricio de San Bernardo
