    Several years ago I happened upon Van and his wife at a gas station in Lakewood, Colorado. At that time I was living in the mountains and had come down to the “flat land”. We were so surprised to see each other. I was sorry later that I didn’t get their address. Rest in peace, Van. Condolences to all the family.
