    Bobby and I lived across the street from each other on two and a half south in Vernal from 5 to 11 years old. We were best buddies during those years. During the summer we played together all day! I remember one day when he climbed - the Ufford boys were always climbing something - a big Cottonwood tree on the Tabernacle grounds (now the Vernal Temple) to look at a bird's nest. I was too 'chicken' to go up there so I stayed down on the grass watching him. He lost his grip, fell and nearly landed on me! He broke an arm and leg...scared me to death. I ran thru the block and got his Mom. He was laid up for quite a while. I'd go over and visit him every day. My folks moved up on the mountain to run the Flaming Gorge Lodge when I was 11 and we kinda lost touch, but I'll never forget those growing up years! Bobby and I were doing something everyday. If my mom couldn't find me she knew I was probably over at the Uffords! I'm glad I found this site to leave this note. In 1995 I went to the wall and rubbed Bobby's name off. Sad deal, but I still have the paper in my desk. RIP buddy.
