Memories: My memory
is of a quick moving, slight and blond haired young man doing the things
that all boys in Ten Sleep did and hurrying along the gravel road to the Dellos house on the Ten Sleep creek near Roy Sweet
property. I understood, at the announcement of his death, that he had
lost both legs from a hidden land mine. Fb
