This was my father. I was 12 years old when this happened.

Thank you for remembering him. H
Now that I am a grown man, I really understand what a GREAT man he was! He taught me a lot, a whole lot about life in my short 12 years with him.
.

Regards,

Daniel M. Devaney, youngest of the 8 kids from my Dad.

I rode at Sycamore Acres with the Devaney girls and one of the boys (Dave). They were all great kids and we really enjoyed them at the barn. Plus they were all real cuties!
