    Pastor Dave

    When I first met Pastor Dave, he was a vibrant speaker and a passionate man in his early 80's. He always had a story, a fascinating story. I didn't care how many times he told them, as some others did. I wish I could still hear them, I fear that I could forget them. I have...

    Tombstone, AZ

    I recall when at the age of 12 or 13 spending the summer listening to an elderly bedridden man that had lived in Tombstone during the days of Watt Earp, Doc Holliday, Bat Masterson, and the cowboys. I was only able to listen to the 90+ year old gentleman late in the evening...
