|Darrel is the son of my Uncle Dean,
(Darrel). I bet I was in my teens before I knew Uncle Dean's real
name was Darrel. I am glad to post your memories of Dad, but I
have just as good of memories going to Uncle Dean and Aunt Kathleen's
for a week or so in the summer. Hope all is well and write when
you can. Pete.
Your cousin Darrel Jr. here. I saw your posting of your Dad.
I wanted to write to you and tell you of one of my fondest memories
growing up. I remember when my mom and dad (Darrel Thomas and
Kathleen (Owen) Thomas) would pack us kids up and head out and visit
Uncle Charles and Aunt Betty. I was always excited because your
mom and dad had the greatest swimming pool!!! Shannon and I used
to go in and hug everyone, go straight to the bedroom's, change into our
swimming trunks, and go diving into their pool! Uncle Charles used
to come out drinking his Coors light, and smoking his cigar laughing at
all of us kids in his pool. I think it truly made him happy to see all
of us kids having the time of our lives! It was heaven to us kids
from Colorado who really didn't have much growing up. I truly miss Uncle
Charles and everyone else out there in Cimarron! I hope all is
well with you and your family. Love your webpage! It really
brings back a lot of memories, and brings a smile to my face every
single time. Take care. Darrel Thomas.
