Winding It Up in Arizona

Hello Dear Reader,
When Kent was well enough Grandpa (Wes) and Grandma (Mary) made the long journey over the hot desert to have him blessed in the Bisbee Ward. It is about 45 miles from Fort Huachuca to Bisbee. Today it takes about an hour and twenty minutes to make the trip. Back then it probably took at least twice as long.

The job at the fort was nearing completion. Wes, Verl Croft, and the foreman, Owen Radford, were the only civilians left employed at the base. Mary and Wes decided it was time to return to their families in Utah.
