    I am so sorry to read about Sluggy’s passing. We also found where Byron had passed away. Shawn and I were searching the internet and found it. I remember when they both came to Crestone and went back packing. That has been many years ago. I think of all of you often but don’t know how to get in touch with you. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
