Judy, Laura, Bruce and family. I am G. L. Miller from Albuquerque ,New Mexico. I visited and stayed at your home in Pieora, as well I stayed in Niarobi and the first group of Tsavorite mines. When Bruce was small he saw a brown Stetson Bowboy hat that I wore. He loved that hat and I gave it to him before I came home to America. I will always remember Cambell in my heart. He was a mentor and a man of strong character. I hope to speak to Bruce someday. You are in my prayers glmiller50@aol.com
