    As a young boy I lived next door to the Richard Bedore family. My father George Desaire died in 1956 when I was 9 years of age. Richard Bedore had two sons, Richard Lee and Ron that were my age. We spent many an Sunday afternoon fishing on Big Creek or any small creek through some farmer's pasture catching grasshoppers and then hooking them on an old cane pole witha red and white bobber, and dropping them into holes near the bank into the depths where old Mr Catfish called home.

    I always respected Mr Richard Bedore because he was a hard working honest Christian man who took a young nine year old fatherless boy under his wing to become a suragate father to me. I watched many afternoons in the Damar Beer joint watching Richard smoking one cigarette after another while he took all the old widow's money in Pinocle games.

    He was a good man.
