I wish to use this method to thank the organizers and attendees of the recent 12th annual TTR for their many courtesies extended to both my wife and myself during our time at TTR-2022. I am home and still recovering from my unexpected hospital stay following my collapse during the opening day session. We enjoyed the informative sessions and especially the comradery time with many old, and some new, friends. We look forward to next year and the “gunfighter-gunfights” theme.
I feel extremally honored to have been selected as TTR’s third “lifetime achievement” award recipient for my research, presentations, and writing in Tombstone and western history. I am standing in “high cotton” next to Ben Traywick and Bob Palmquist.
To the “youngsters” in the field of Tombstone history continue your research because there is so much waiting to be found. May the Good Lord continue to bless our great Country.
