Ms. Brinegar, The Currant Creek Ranch & Cattle Company would like to extend our deepest sympathies for the passing of your parents. While I only met your father briefly on the road one day I got a genuine feeling I had met the real deal when it comes to western ranching. We had hoped to converse with your parents all on the great history of the ranches and their lives over a beverage and would still hope to meet you and your family in the near future. My family will be moving to the ranch this fall and invite you to stop by at anytime. Rob Scheer & Family Currant Creek Ranch 907-617-5053

Dear Lee, I just want to share with you the impact your Mom, Dorothe, had on my life. You know my association with her was primarily in P.E.O. and she truly gave me confidence to do the jobs I needed to do. I always admired her energy, wit, and intelligence. She was a very special lady and I share your loss. God bless you all.

Hi Lee. I was surprised and saddened to hear of your mom & dad's death--especially so close together in time. I promised my mom that I would write-- she was quite distressed to hear of your mom's passing especially. She is now at the Deertrail Assisted Living facility (2360 Reagan Ave, Apt #122, Rock Springs WY 82901-4660; 307-382-9211) and I was visiting her when she saw the obituary. I have many many fond memories of trips we all took together-- Jackson, Black Hills, Vernal, etc... I can only imagine that these trips were a bit ponderous for you---stuck with 3 young crazy boys---so thanks for your patience and forbearance in those days..... Mary Jo and I hope you are well and happy, and we hope the coming weeks and months will not be too difficult-- although I can certainly appreciate the many practical and emotional challenges that these events bring. Take care and rest assured that your mom and dad are in our thoughts these days. They added to our lives and for that we are grateful. And for my mother, those additions are truly inexpressible. john wataha (and Mary Jo)
